MENASA Leadership Retreat gives us a chance to create an atmosphere around reclaiming, refocusing and restoring Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian identities that make our unique experiences and histories the community that it is today. Coming together in this space also helps us to shape and contribute to the MENASA community in a way that is most beneficial and empowering for us all as individuals. We set themes that are broad enough to cover all the ways we can tell our own stories and shift the narrative to reflect our diversity.

This retreat is open to all students: first years, transfers, current students, and student leaders. Students of all identities and intersections—including undocumented, LGBTQIA+, and differently-abled, are encouraged to be a part of this community building experience. 

Date: February 5-7,
Location: Remote on Zoom
