The theme for this year is the Effects of Structural Inequality, focusing on: (1) Racism, Oppression and the Achievement Gap; (2) Human Trafficking and the Oversexualization of Culture; and (3) Corporate Social Responsibility. An emphasis will be on domestic and international racial/ethnic relations and improving the campus climate. Using interactive exhibits, workshops, dialogue groups, and presentations, the goal of this student-led conference is to provide resources and knowledge about current injustices, and empower students to action.
