The theme of this year's Summit is "Identity" and pertains to self-discovery. Whether it be self-identity, sexual identity, professional identity, or any one of an endless list, every person is unique; regardless of different backgrounds and VSAs, we come together to provide UVSA Gulf Coast with its own distinct and evolving identity.
