What Is BOOM?

BOOM is an annual Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) learning symposium featuring a series of events. The event incorporates the voices and experiences of students, faculty, staff and alums. Sessions are designed by members of the community for the entire community and will meet participants where they are in their learning and comfort in engaging in sessions on diversity, equity, and inclusion. BOOM! 2023 will be a combination of live talks and recorded content.
