Students of Color Conference (SOCC) 2018
Yakima, WA
April 12-14, 2018

The Annual Students of Color Conference (sponsored by the Washington State Multicultural Student Services Directors Council) brings together over 800 students from colleges throughout the state. This conference brings students from colleges and universities across Washington State to have conversations regarding race and identity while developing leadership skills and networking with fellow students.

All registration costs, accommodations, and transportation will be covered by Student Leadership for those students selected to attend.


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.

The conference is guided by five main themes:

Identity Development: introduce students to concepts and structures that will strengthen their ethnic and/or racial identity.

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.

Skill Development: students build and learn skills that they can use to achieve their full potential.

Social Justice/Social Activism: these workshops will introduce and/or advance students’ understanding of the importance of becoming social agents of change.

Personal Development: students learn the importance of health and wellness issues related to the mind, body, and soul.
