SCOR’s Annual National Symposium at the University of Michigan “Tectonics of Justice: The Shifting Face of Activism" pertains to building historical knowledge, instilling empathy, and creating genuine change. As aspiring scholars, administrators, and professionals, what can we do to prepare for the next 200 years? More specifically, how can we continue to build a community at Michigan that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable?

The Symposium will serve as a positive professional and scholarly space for students to gain historical knowledge of how our institution has changed, how we as a community can seek to understand each other and foster empathy across our campus, and finally what we can do to genuinely make changes on our campus that benefit us as an entire community. We will provide students with an opportunity to share their research and explore pathways for successfully achieving their career aspirations through professional development. By collaborating with the Rackham Graduate School, Society of Minority Engineers and Scientists-Graduate Component (SMES-G)SHPE-Grad, the Alumni Center, faculty, and individual schools and departments on campus students will have an opportunity to network and learn from students across campus..
