The UCI Student Outreach and Retention Center presents
SIPCON 2019: EMPOWERING STUDENT VOICES USING INNOVATION AND SOCIAL MEDIA AS TOOL FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
I'm no longer accepting the things I cannot change; I'm changing the things that I cannot accept." ~Angela Davis
SIPCON 2019 promotes social change through empowering student voices using innovation and social media as a tool for social change
SIPCON, Student Initiated Projects Leadership Conference, focuses on authentically developing leaders amongst UCI undergraduate students through inspiring students who desire to lead through ideas of change on how to champion social issues such as poverty and financial empowerment, access to health care, housing and homelessness, social injustices in our laws and access to education that plague historically underserved and underrepresented communities.
Achievement gaps in education are perpetuated by gaps in opportunities to lead. Students with opportunities to lead and become agents of change are more likely to succeed and the UCI SOAR Center serves as a path to mobility, student success and leadership and changing the status quo through SIPCON.
The UCI SOAR Center SIPCON visionaries encompass a student staff of coordinators who focus on Outreach and Retention within the center led by their Assistant Director Hannah Jones. The student staff are mentored and shown how to effectively put on events and design programs and even manage grants given to Student Registered Campus Organizations to do college access, readiness and mentorship work in the community and grants to retain students on campus.
The Outreach Team, Petra, Marvin and Paris worked to award over $60K in outreach grants and the the Retention Team Sylvia, Fatuma and Brenda will be awarding $30K in retention grants. These programs are supported by the student Marketing Coordinator team Alex, Bria and Jennifer and Student Office Manager Andion.
SIPCON will take place March 9th, 2019 9AM-2PM at the UCI Student Center, Emerald Bay ABC. Registration is required and opens Feb. 4, 2019 and the conference is free.
