Our Mission

The Staff of Color Association (SOCA) is committed to promoting the interests and advocating for staff at University of Denver from historically unrepresented races and ethnicities. We honor and celebrate the diversity of our cultures and actively contribute to the University by:

  • Providing members with a supportive community and brave spaces,
  • Fostering belonging for all intersecting experiences,
  • Sharing knowledge about the campus climate,
  • Providing support for the recruitment of diverse candidates throughout the University, and
  • Establishing meaningful connections between staff, students, and faculty of color.

Our Vision

To establish a culture of acceptance of others free of biases based on differences of any kind through commitment to individual and organizational efforts to build respect, dignity, fairness, caring, equality, and self-esteem.
