Students of Color Conference

The Students of Color Conference (SOCC) is the University of California Student Association's oldest and largest conference, providing a safe space for students of color to strategize around statewide and campus-based actions. SOCC has been hosted every year since 1988.

This year, UC Riverside hosted the statewide Students of Color Conference from January 26-28, 2018. This year's theme was on educational justice. Each year, the Student Union Assembly welcomes UCSC students to apply to and attend SOCC, free of charge (transportation costs, housing, etc. will be provided and covered for the duration of the conference). 

Applications are CLOSED.
