    “Amazing experience. A time of learning and breaking down barriers and opening up to all different identities and cultures”

  • Student Responses

    “I really enjoyed myself. Just being able to talk and share stories with people who have similar journeys was just amazing.”

  • Student Responses

    “I felt like everyone I talked to could relate to similar situations, even coming from different backgrounds. We had a very awesome, deep conversation, and it helped strengthen our bond and teach us that we're not all so different while simultaneously allowing us to tell our stories.”

    “Great experience. Loved my group. Great leaders. Friendships were made”

Each year, SMDP new and returning Student Leaders attend a four day social justice retreat. This retreat prepares them to fulfill their roles as inclusive and empowered change agents on campus and helps them to build community with one another for the year ahead.

This multifaceted excursion is both educational and fun. Our students spend time delving into complex systems of privilege and oppression, discovering who they are as leaders, mentors, and educators, and creating lasting relationships with their peers. Not to mention, there is tie-dying, kayaking, hiking, and other sports.

This retreat sets a tone for the amazing work student leaders do throughout the academic year and propels our office forward in creating an inclusive, welcoming campus.

Contact our office if you would like to become a student leader!
