Students will engage in discussion and educational sessions and will culminate their ISLC experience by creating a Dream, Believe, Achieve Action Plan which focuses on articulating one's goals and aspirations (DREAMS), identifying the individuals on campus that have helped them on their journey (BELIEVERS), and making a step by step plan to ACHIEVE one's goals.
