Northeastern Graduate Students of Color Collective:
The purpose of the GSCC is to build a community for domestic and international graduate students within the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) on all Northeastern University Campuses by promoting education, professionalism, and civic duty. The GSCC fosters BIPOC student, staff, faculty, and alumni relationships to establish a campus home for higher education at Northeastern. Through civic engagement with surrounding communities, the GSCC recognizes the continued struggles of marginalized populations, and the need for those who have succeeded in giving back.
