Hello again! Today I’ll introduce you to a wonderful resource at Scripps called SCORE. SCORE stands for Scripps Communities of Resources and Empowerment and the office aims to “build an inclusive community through social justice programming with an emphasis on intersectionality”. SCORE houses many clubs and organizations on campus that unite students along identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, class, and ethnicity. I will now introduce you to all the currently active clubs and organizations within the SCORE office:
Asian American Sponsor Program (AASP)
