Students of Color Symposium 2023


The Students of Color Symposium (SOCS) is an educational initiative developed to support the ongoing diversity efforts of the University of Miami. The Symposium provides an opportunity to engage in dialogue on issues that affect the educational, personal and professional growth of students. The Symposium seeks to enhance students’ understanding of diversity, multiculturalism, ethical leadership, and social responsibility associated with living in our global society.

I Choose Me: Mental Health is Mental Wealth


This year’s theme is "I Choose Me: Mental Health is Mental Wealth." Through workshop sessions, facilitated conversations, and networking opportunities, the Symposium will create a unique environment to destigmatize mental health and promote emotional and physical well-being.
