This year’s Minnesota OUT! Campus Conference is hosted by Minnesota State Community & Technical College AND Minnesota State University Moorhead, MN. We are very exited for this campus partnership to bring you a fantastic MOCC 2018 this October 26th-28th. Friday registration and activities will take place at the M State campus, while the remainder of the conference events will take place at MSU Moorhead campus.
Our goal for the MOCC 2018 is to connect, empower, and inspire our students within the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
We want to connect students with other students and representatives within the community. These connections allow students to become more involved within the LGBTQIA2S+ world as well as build understanding of themselves and others. Connecting students develops a stronghold, which will strengthen our students as well as the LGBTQIA2S+ community.
We also hope to empower our students to be who they are. While learning about themselves and the LGBTQIA2S+ community, it’s important our students embrace who they are in a space where they can do it. Encouraging self-expression and knowledge for these students can bring a powerful energy to our LGBTQIA2S+ students.
As well, we desire to inspire our students to not only be who they are, but also be an additional voice for the LGBTQIA2S+community. By inspiring our LGBTQIA2S+ students, we can enforce and assure a prosperous future for students in their lives beyond the conference.
These three crucial goals for this conference fortify the beliefs we hope all LGBTQIA2S+ individuals carry through our community and instill a sense of belonging within our students that they will share with the world.
