MOCC 2012!!!

Hey everyone!! MOCC 2012 is officially a go. This year’s Minnesota OUT! Campus Conference will be October 12-14 at St. Olaf College in Northfield. The theme is Creating Cohesive Communities: Sharing Perspectives and Celebrating DiversityThe intent of the theme is to implore you (attendees) to consider the viewpoints and processes of other students and campuses, while contemplating how best to implement effective strategies in your own unique environments. The steering committee is comprised entirely of students, and we want to hear from you! If you have any great ideas, things you loved at past MOCCs, and/or stuff you want to see in the future, please email the committee at mocc@mncampusalliance.org. We want to this to be a conference for youth, by youth, to empower youth, so please do not hesitate to let us know your thoughts!
