DIY ALANA Studies (ALANA)
Recognizing a gap in the curricular offerings at Reed, the Do-It-Yourself ALANA (African American, Latino/a, Asian American, Native American) Studies student group collaborates with faculty from a variety of departments to develop talks and workshops that analyze and explore identities of color. DIY ALANA Studies offers programs and events that foster discussion and debate, while affirming the cultures of communities of color.
Feminist Student Union (FSU)
Feminist Student Union is an organization for persons of all genders to engage in discussion and organize events related to gender, sexuality, sexism, and the promotion of social change. FSU coordinates Women's Week, Speak-Out and discussion groups, and brings artists, performers, and speakers to campus. FSU is NOT about man-bashing, but understanding and R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
Queer Alliance (QA)
Queer Alliance is an all-inclusive organization dedicated to issues of sexuality and gender. There are weekly discussions and meetings, as well as movie nights, Drag Ball, and other activities. In addition, outside educators and entertainers are brought to campus.
Diversity and Inclusion Programming Assistance
The MRC supports student efforts to organize events, programs, and peer support networks that contribute to the development of an inclusive campus community. In addition to helping with funding and support for specific events, programs, and peer support networks, MRC staff also can provide advice for how to make your organization's meetings more welcoming and inclusive, how to manage conflict, and how to connect with off-campus organizations and resources.
Individual students and student organizations interested in requesting funding assistance from the MRC should e-mail a brief proposal that includes budget and information about other funding sources to Dayspring Mattole, MRC Program Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
