The group produces events to provoke thought about sexuality, consider the different lifestyle students choose to live, and to celebrate each person's sexual orientation.

QPOC: Queer People of Color
Co-Chair: Ricky McGhee
Co-Chair: Laura Brown
Treasurer: Kheryn Callender

Queer People of Color or QPOC’s mission is to serve students, faculty, and staff of color who assume a queer or questioning sexual identity by creating a safe space for their intellectual thought. This is especially important on a campus and in a society where that thought has been given credence or validity as an entity of its own, worthy of individual study. QPOC exists as a way to correct this and to reaffirm the legitimacy of its club body. QPOC proposes to be an inclusive group, allowing for open discussions among those of varying sexual, racial, ethnic, and gender identities. An ultimate focus, however, will remain anchored on issues of non-heteronormative or queer sexuality and gender that are complicated by “the perceptions, realities, and consequences of racial and ethnic identity.”* QPOC also proposes to be sort of a mobile group, with representatives from the club body sitting at various SLC clubs (i.e. the other identity groups). This is an attempt to further engage the greater SLC community with its issues. *Common Ground Mission Statement.
