Students of Color Leadership Retreat
The Students of Color Leadership Retreat (SOCLR) is an annual retreat weekend that takes place during the fall semester in a residential camp setting. The SOCLR weekend is designed to fortify participants in their leadership at Columbia, Barnard and beyond, to focus on shared experiences, and to critically examine various issues and "isms" that relate to living in a multicultural and diverse community. Upon returning from the retreat, students are galvanized by the enhanced connections made during the weekend and are able to continue in their work as student leaders with a strong supportive community behind them. During the weekend, student leaders of color work on building their leadership skills using a developmental process.
