Stand Tall and Wear Your Crown

November 4-6th
The College of Wooster

 

The intersectionality of identities for students of color at Historically White Institutions (HWI) can be complex, yet rewarding. The ability to connect with various cultures, individuals and communities allow students the opportunity to build relationships that foster academic success while maintaining a carefree sense of self. Yet many times the stress of balancing collegiate life, relationships and the demands of society lead to the neglect of self-care and wellness. The goal of this conference is to unite students with the idea of self-love, awareness and pride, while actively caring for their community.
