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 communities: Womxn of Color Collective (WoCC) and IVC Fellowship Exchange of Lessons Learned & Academic Support (IVC FELLAS).
What Our 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 and scholarship opportunities
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.
The WoCC is a group dedicated to building community and empowering self-identified womxn of color students, staff, and faculty. Womxn is used in place of “women” to be inclusive of all gender experiences surrounding femininity. Non-female-identifying students such as non-binary and gender expansive folks are explicitly invited and welcomed.
Join the Collective!
IVC FELLAS: IVC Fellowship Exchange of Lessons Learned & Academic Support
IVC FELLAS (formerly EMCEES) is a DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility) driven male initiative focused on student success and community engagement for the college’s self-identified men of color students, staff, and faculty. This brotherhood was created to encourage college completion and transfer and to establish a sense of belonging. All are welcome.
