Students of Color of Rackham



Advocating and promoting students of color since 1970

The Students of Color of Rackham (SCOR) graduate organization is a network for Rackham graduate and professional students at the University of Michigan. SCOR is dedicated to the social, cultural, political, and academic well-being of students of color representing diverse cultures, ethnicities, and international origins. We work to improve the quality of students’ academic, professional, and social lives respectful of differences in culture, ability, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. 

As SCOR we, 

  • Enable political and diversity awareness at the University and within local communities, both nationally and internationally.
  • Sponsor cultural, educational, social programs and activities which appeal to graduate students of color.
  • Build an environment in which all persons can network and acquire opportunities for  leadership and professional development. 
  • Enhance the campus and community environment to promote academic growth and general well-being among students of color.
