Identity-Based Student Clubs

Student clubs and organizations play a large role in planning and hosting our multicultural and social advocacy programming, as well as smaller observances throughout the semester. The clubs listed on this page also serve as communities for students seeking affinity group support. Common interest unites these student clubs as they move toward shared goals. Allies and those looking to expand their knowledge and social connections are also welcome in these organizations.
