Cooper Point Journal

Cooper Point Journal organization members commit their efforts to two primary purposes: compiling submissions from students at large to create a newspaper that focuses on and reflects the student citizens of The Evergreen State College and examines how matters, particularly within the college, affect and involve students. The newspaper - also named Cooper Point Journal - serves as a medium for informing and entertaining students and as a forum for the ideas and opinions of students and others.The learning laboratory aspect of the CPJ organization manifests itself by developing and maintaining effective and responsible managing of operations and finances of an endeavor (newspaper) organization, as well as dealing with such life challenges as organizing efforts to develop and maintain an inclusive organization, establishing a group culture of inclusive and responsible decision making, personal and collective accountability, leadership that focuses of fulfilling organization goals and objectives by fostering an environment of consensus and cooperation rather than focusing on the decision-making authority and responsibilities of leadership, confronting injustice and discrimination.

Women in Science at Evergreen (W.I.S.E.)

Women in Science at Evergreen (WISE) is an organization dedicated to helping woman-identified science students at The Evergreen State College create community around the common goal of reducing unconscious bias and discrimination toward women scientists. Monthly luncheons, as well as quarterly panel discussions featuring diverse women scientists will provide the opportunity to discuss the challenges and celebrate the achievements of women in scientific fields. Students will also be able to engage in professional networking and cross-discipline discussions of their research and/or educational goals. While WISE is an organization devoted to supporting woman-identified students in sciences at Evergreen, those who do not identify as binary or gendered but who are directly impacted by systemic misogyny in the sciences, along with all other under-represented and oppressed groups, are invited. Indeed, all students interested in advancing an equitable and healthy environment in the sciences are welcome. 

Meetings

Women of Color Coalition (WOCC)

The purpose of the Women of Color Coalition (WOCC) is to create community enrichment through events, conferences, activities, and spaces for women of color and their allies who are interested in equitable relationship building. Our intention is to develop an environment that allows for us to come together in solidarity and empower one another through cultural, educational and entertaining meetings and events. We aim to be a resource for students who want to explore identity and create visibility for women of color in our community, and provide personal time as well as exploring written work by women of color and creating workshops. We strive to utilize WOCC to educate and empower our members in honoring unique experiences, common ground, and celebrating cultural ties to support each other while navigating our campus community. All womyn welcome--QTPOC safe space.

Our office is located in the CAB building upstairs with Student Activities. Our office is for you to utilize. Computer, paints, radical books and zines. Just a safe space for us to chill on campus and organize in community.

Write/Hear

Write/Hear is an on campus writing support group (separate from the Writing Center) where members meet weekly in a non-academic setting to share, work, create and collaborate in a low-stress setting. Our goal is to foster creativity through routine sessions and new prompts. We hope to help empower each other's authorship through active practice and oral presentation. Members participate in weekly meetings, provide a strong foundation of support, and find methods of overcoming artistic stagnation, or "writer's block."
