Support Groups and Programs
If you identify as a Black, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC) student, this is a space for you! Join other students of color in this group to share your experiences both on and off this campus and build community. Support groups provide an opportunity to find community and support from students who may be facing similar challenges as you. Support groups are a great place to both share personal experiences as well as listen to and support your peers which can often create a sense of validation. FREE food is provided for those who RSVP in advance. All BIPOC identities welcome! The group is facilitated by Purna Bajekal (SU Counselor), Santiago Rocha (SU Health Educator), and Geneva Walker (SU Counselor).
This support group is for any students who are questioning and/or exploring their gender and/or who identify as non-binary, trans, gender fluid, or gender non-conforming. This is a space where students can share their journeys, ask questions, create community together, celebrate their identities, and express concerns. The group is facilitated by Purna Bajekal (SU Counselor).
Pirates in Progress, or PiP, is a 10-week program. Students who join a PiP cohort will meet up once a week for interactive workshops and activities focused on their holistic growth and community-building. Following the Mosaic approach — Engage. Reflect. Articulate. — PiP supports students in finding ways to engage on campus, in the community, with their peers, and to be mindful of how these experiences shape their academic and personal lives.
