The conference will include workshops, panel discussions and activities centering around the roles that community, consciousness and culture play in the lives of students in higher education. Workshop topics will include health and consciousness, community and activism, and creative expression.
Attendees will be provided with the tools and knowledge to maneuver themselves with greater confidence through the higher education system following graduation from high school. Students from various experiences will have the opportunity to voice their needs and desires in relation to their higher education and academic aspirations.
MASSO has sponsored university, community and political events benefiting UTSA students and the San Antonio community. With the group's mission of encouraging cultural pride, cultural awareness and community activism, the conference's goal is to help students bridge the gap between high school and higher education.
