Student Groups

As late as the fall of 2002, the IC was comprised of four groups: ENLACE (Latino/a student organization), the Native American Student Association (NASA), the Swarthmore Asian Organization (SAO) and the Swarthmore Queer Union (SQU). Since that time, the center has grown significantly to encompass a broader range of social, cultural and queer student groups, including DESHI (South Asian student organization), MULTI (multi-racial students), COLORS (queer students of color), the Queer-Straight Alliance (QSA), and the Queer Trans Conference (QTC) committee.

Additionally, there are several groups affiliated with Intercultural Center, with whom we consistently collaborate and support, including the Swarthmore Islamic Society (formerly MSA), I-20 (International student organization), and Han (Korean student organization), along with many more.
