This conference provides a platform that will enable students of color the opportunity to assemble and discuss topics that impact their communities. The mission of the conference is to empower all participants with the skills and knowledge needed to foster academic success, establish coalitions, and improve personal achievement by influencing leadership through the representation of unity and a commitment to the collective betterment of humankind. In support of the mission, the conference seeks to sustain goals relative to graduation, leadership development, career preparation and awareness, diversity education, and personal empowerment. A holistic approach toward students' development is provided.
