What is Students of Color Coalition (SOCC)?

The Students of Color Coalition will be a collaborative effort amongst students of color to foster unity and solidarity across the great Ithaca College community. All members will play an important role in giving input and feedback on any and all things that are created by the students of color coalition. Our goal is to use a decentralized structure that holds everyone accountable and responsible for their part in the group.

Plans for 2019

Monthly Town Hall Meetings  

Monthly town hall meetings will be held to gauge how the students are doing what they’re feeling and how we as an organization with connections to various resources on campus can improve their experience. Our goal is to be a resource to the students as well as the other race-based organizations.

Monthly Workshops/Events 

SOCC plans to begin hosting monthly events and workshops in a collaborative effort with our student organizations to inform and educate our campus community as well as create spaces where they can feel comfortable and have fun.
