About the Students of Color Conference

Planned annually by the Washington State Multicultural Student Services Directors’ Council, the Students of Color Conference (SOCC) brings together Washington state college students to:

  • explore their identities
  • increase their awareness of others’ identities
  • build skills to achieve their full potential
  • advance their understanding of social justice and activism
  • practice personal development

The goal of SOCC is to “support Washington State students to become more active proponents of their own education and life choices, and expand the opportunities and possibilities for students to become agents of change.”

The conference consists of three days of workshops, speakers, community, and fun.

Attendance of Evergreen students at SOCC is sponsored by Student Activities and First Peoples Multicultural Advising Services.
