Growing Allies

Fall 2015 Retreat

The Growing Allies Retreat is an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to explore their identities as they relate to issues of social justice. The retreat is held once a semester on campus and is free for all to attend. Within the span of a two-day period, participants get to explore their social identities, make meaning about how those identities have influenced their experiences, and build skills around identifying instances of bias and discrimination, and challenging those behaviors in everyday scenarios.

What Is Growing Allies?

Growing Allies strives to build a community of social justice allies committed to creating a safer and more inclusive environment at the University of Michigan and beyond. Growing Allies envisions a community where allies work together and support each other.
