The conference is guided by five main themes:

  2. Awareness of Others: these workshops are designed to increase students’ awareness, knowledge, and understanding related to race, ethnicity, and other differences of groups other than their own. 
  3. Skill Development: students build and learn skills that they can use to achieve their full potential. 
  4. Social Justice/Social Activism: these workshops will introduce and/or advance students’ understanding of the importance of becoming social agents of change.
  5. Personal Development: students learn the importance of health and wellness issues related to the mind, body, and soul.

CONFERENCE GOAL:The goal of the conference is to support Washington State students to become more active proponents of their own education and life choices, and expand the opportunities and possibilities for students to become agents of change.
