Students of Color Leadership Retreat
The Students of Color Leadership Retreat (SOCLR) is an annual retreat weekend that takes place in a residential camp setting during the fall semester. SOCLR weekend is designed to fortify participants in their leadership at Barnard, Columbia, 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. SOCLR is designed for students who identify themselves as a person of color as a primary identity.
SOCLR is a joint venture between Barnard and Columbia and is open to all undergraduates.
LGBTQ and Allied Retreat
