Student Groups of Color

Evergreen's student organizations, coordinated by students of color for students of color, are valuable sources of cultural enrichment, personal growth, lasting friendships and solidarity.

Each year, these student groups could not exist without the hard work and dedication of the students. It is up to the students to keep each of the groups running for future students to come. Even if it's your first year, you can choose to become a coordinator for a student group. 

At Evergreen, student organizations are more than just clubs or social alliances. They provide cultural, educational, recreational, and spiritual services to students. Students working with First Peoples student organizations conduct important work against racism and harassment and help the entire community understand, welcome and honor diversity.

These organizations produce cross-cultural events, bring speakers, films and entertainment to the community, sponsor conferences, and play an integral role in promoting  the college's goals of enhancing cultural diversity and student empowerment.

Women of Color Coalition (WOCC)

The purpose of the Women of Color Coalition (WOCC) is to connect all persons who identify as women of color and desire community, including gender non-conforming and non-binary identities. We plan to create community enrichment through events, 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 meeting 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. 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 navigating our campus community.
