One of the primary goals of the Office of Student Equity is to foster student engagement on campus. If you are interested in diversity and inclusion, there are a number of student clubs that you can join, which are listed below. For additional information about these clubs, including contact information and meeting times, please visit the Cabrillo Student Clubs Page.
Through an intersectional approach, the Feminist Club aims to promote equality, growth, and understanding among the Cabrillo community and beyond through an activist role and to provide a safe and supportive space for all.
Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA)
GSA (Gender and Sexuality Alliance) Club - Fall Meeting Information TBA. A club for anyone on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, Queer, and/or questioning individuals. Everyone is welcome!
Inside Out Writing Project
The Inside Out Writing Project seeks to raise awareness of mass incarceration. It offers art and creative writing workshops to people in the Santa Cruz County Jail. These workshops help to transcend the social constructs that define criminality. In this way, it helps alleviate the disconnection between the jail, the people that it houses, and the greater Santa Cruz community.
Latinos are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) occupations—accounting for less than seven percent of the jobs. So Latinos United at Cabrillo in Engineering and Science (LUCES) focuses on supporting and inspiring Latinos in engineering and STEM majors. The club conducts outreach projects with local primary and secondary education institutions that have large Latino populations, coordinates with industry programs which benefit students seeking technical degrees, and promotes the advancement of Hispanic engineers and scientists. They also provide a forum for the exchange of information pertinent for Hispanic engineering/science students enrolled in Cabrillo College.
People Empowering Each other to Realize Success (PEERS) focuses on what the Cabrillo community needs in order to be physically and emotionally healthy. Specifically how it cares for our children, our elders, our families and ourselves. The club explores how we design our living and working spaces, how we feed and clothe ourselves, how we gather and celebrate, and how we keep our bodies and minds healthy and strong. All students are welcome to join its cause and contribute their special skills. PEERS works closely with Student Health Services to optimize student support so they can achieve their academic and personal goals.
Cabrillo Sueños Club was founded by a group of undocumented students who saw that the undocumented youth in the area were in great need of help. The club's purpose is to inform, encourage and empower the undocumented youth, helping them realize that they are not alone in the fight to reach their dreams. The club helps students find different avenues through which they might pay for their tuition and miscellaneous school costs, such as through fundraisers. The Sueños Club believes deeply that the undocumented have the right to be heard, the right to be informed, but most of all they have the right to be educated. This helps them become successful and an inspiration to others in the undocumented community who seek to better themselves and their way of life.
The Sustainability Council is a group of students dedicated to bringing about a sustainable campus and world through raising awareness and taking action in projects that directly affect the lives of Cabrillo students. By working together towards free educational experiences, it amplifies the voices of students and communities alike. Together with its members, the Sustainability Council can teach, learn and communicate resources to the students of Cabrillo and beyond. The Sustainability Council is always looking for new ideas. It exists to share leadership and communication skills, resources and information through lectures, workshops, movies, convergences and rallies.
