Scripps Communities of Resources and Empowerment (SCORE)

Scripps Communities of Resources and Empowerment

Mission Statement

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, Watu Weusi, Café con Leche, the Asian American Student Union, the Asian American Sponsor Program, the Disability, Illness, and Difference Alliance, Family, Blend, and Kehilah. SCORE also has a kitchen, living room, and conference room for student use by reservation. You can find us on the north side of campus, next to the Office of Student Engagement (OSE) and across from Frankel/Routt Residence Halls.

  • you want to explore issues of identity personally or more broadly;

  • you need assistance facilitating a workshop or program related to identity, diversity, or social justice; or

SCORE leads the Scripps community in social justice education. SCORE programming is informed by “Hot Topics” on campus, national and international events, and community needs. SCORE programs also focus on providing community building opportunities as well as time and space for self-care.

Students are at the heart of the SCORE Office. SCORE student interns lead many of the office’s programming initiatives which are informed by their peers, conversations in classes, and the socio-political scene. SCORE empowers interns with the practical skills to help facilitate SCORE’s mission and prepare them to be leaders at Scripps as well as in their communities post-graduation.
