At the 2018 Dream Summit, we encouraged students to explore freely, ask questions openly, and enjoy wholeheartedly. All of the sessions, panels, and prepared materials were set with the intent of preparing and improving the higher education experience for our Dream Project Scholars.
This year’s Dream Project Scholars’ Summer Summit was a great success. Our vision for this year’s Summit was built upon the feedback and evaluations of years past, hoping to hone in on the most helpful topics according to our Dream Scholars. We had a record number of participants, with 25 scholars attending, since the event’s launch in 2013. We had speakers and sessions ranging in topics from meditation and well-being to legal rights as an immigrant. This year’s Summit placed an importance on respecting others’ confidentiality within and outside of the Summit sessions to guarantee the Scholars’ safety while sharing. These factors contributed to the feeling of satisfaction our students felt at having participated in our Summit this year.
