What to past participants have to say about SUSOC?

“For me, it was a “one in a lifetime experience” it was empowering to be amongst those who are going through similar issues and struggles, the activities I went through helped me understand more about myself and my culture. It was nice to form friendships that I can count on and know that they "know" what I am going through and experiencing.”

“I learned from others in my shoes how to manage the stress involved with being a student of color, as well as learned that I have a community. Learning that others are there for you in such a bonded way could never be taught in a classroom.”


SUSOC participants will:

· Identify and connect with sources of resilience · Develop strategies for integrating resilience practices into daily life · Practice reflection and contemplation · Engage in community-building dialogues · Acquire tools for collaboration, including allyship and partnership · Cultivate personal wellness as a social justice practice
