2021 Symposium

ACUM's 2021 inaugural symposium was a huge success thanks to the 200+ participants who joined us from all from all three UM campuses for a day of interactive learning, networking and engagement. We could not have accomplished this milestone without the hard work and dedication of our many presenters who helped make this event possible. This reimagined event exceeded our expectations as a direct result of the support from all of you!
