Students of Color Alliance

The Graduate Students of Color Alliance (GSOCA) is a student-based organization building community among graduate students of color. 

GSOCA aims to advocate for and support its members by:

  • Developing a social network where students of color can discuss and support one another around issues faced by people of color in academic and professional settings

  • Celebrating the contributions of people of color and increasing recognition of the challenges faced by historically underrepresented groups by organizing events on campus, such as speakers and workshops
