SCORE: Scripps Communities of Resources and Empowerment


Who We Are

SCORE is more than an office or department; we seek to build a community of people dedicated to enhancing and supporting inclusion at Scripps College and beyond through programming and advising within a social justice framework. SCORE has a strong collaborative relationship with Scripps International Students, Wanawake Weusi, Café con Leche, the Asian American Student Union, the Asian American Sponsor Program, the Disability, Illness, and Difference Alliance, Family, and Coalition Against Classism. SCORE also has a kitchen, living room, and conference room for student use by reservation; you can find us located on the north side of campus, next to the Student Activities and Residential Life Office (SARLO) and across from Frankel/Routt Residence Halls.


  • Engage students through mission-driven programming
  • Encourage students to explore the intersectionality of identity

Sustained Dialogues

  1. Sustained Dialogues helps people to transform relationships by listening deeply enough to be shift perspective.
  2. Our conversations aim to understand and learn from the different perspectives around the table and build relationships among people that are different from ourselves.
    This semester our dialogue groups will focus on the following issues:

    First Year Experience

    Participants will explore first-year experiences with identity as well as the personal implications of Core I. We hope to create a self-reflective space that fosters deeper understanding and thoughtful consideration of difference in one another. (This group is only open to first year students).

    Race and Class

    This dialogue group is centered around having thoughtful and open conversations about students’ experiences with race and class on and off Scripps campus. We will have the opportunity to learn from and value the unique perspectives of our peers.

    BIG P little p Politics: Power, Privilege and Political Action

    Join us in a dialogue group centering and deconstructing politics. We will consider how our identities shape and inform our understanding of politics ranging from local grassroots and community resistance to elections and (mis)representation.
