UNITED: Rekindling the Spirit

Friday, March 31 - Sunday, April 1, 2023
Thomas H. Hooper III ’71 Conference on Equity and Justice

We are excited to share that we are reviving UNITED, an event developed in 2015 to provide space for alumni and parents of color to share stories of success; learn strategies to navigate academic, professional, and personal challenges; identify mentors; and deepen connections as alumni of this very special institution. This year’s theme, “Rekindling the Spirit,” amplifies our commitment to strengthening the ties that bind us together as members of this community. 

To enhance this experience, we are coupling UNITED with our annual on-campus student equity conference, which has recently been renamed the “Thomas H. Hooper III ’71 Conference on Equity and Justice” in honor of the late alumnus and trustee. Mr. Hooper was a beloved member of the SAS family whose commitment to equity and justice will be celebrated during the conference by those who knew and loved him. The conference will also feature an exciting slate of panelists and chapel speakers to be announced on this page in the weeks to come. Both events will be held at St. Andrew’s.
