Communities of Color

Join a community of students, faculty, and staff who self-identify as women, men, and persons of color. In every meeting the experiences of people of color are intentionally centered, celebrated and honored. We currently have two communicates: Womxn of Color Collective (WOCC) and IVC Elevates Men of Color by Engaging and Embracing Solidarity (IVC EMCEES).

These two communities offer:

  • Monthly meetings
  • Opportunity to build community and friendships
  • Mentorship relationships with IVC faculty and staff who self-identify as people of color
  • Connection to community resources, scholarship opportunities, and


Gender Inclusion:

While these two groups function as self-identifying men of color and women of color groups, we encourage all students to join the group that they would feel most comfortable joining. Nonbinary, trans, and gender expansive students are expressly welcome in both groups and highly encouraged to join.
