Michigan League

The theme for the upcoming conference sponsored by the Students of Color of Rackham is, "What Now? Moving Beyond the Conversation."

The SCOR Symposium is a multidisciplinary professional networking event presented by the Students of Color of Rackham. The theme for the upcoming conference is, "What Now? Moving Beyond the Conversation." Our focus with this symposium is to continue conversations about the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, class, immigration status, age, ability and religious affiliation. We seek to highlight the importance of this intersectionality as we continue to work towards a more inclusive university. Join us as we work to develop a concrete diversity plan based on work by student groups at U-M to submit to the incoming president, Dr. Mark Schlissel.

The symposium features breakout sessions, a faculty panel, a keynote address by U-M President Emeritus and University Professor of Science and Engineering James Duderstadt, a reception and a town hall.

EEB master’s student Beatriz Otero-Jimenez is helping coordinate the seminar.
