And Still We Rise is a community of women of color at the University of St. Thomas who meet monthly to discuss issues that impact them.  The group was formed because research reveals that on predominantly White college campuses  women of color have been found to have “feelings of loneliness and isolation, fears relating to competence, concerns about dating, and feelings of inadequacy about appearance.”  

Still We Rise provides a framework for young women of color, and allies, to increase their understanding and appreciation of how culture, the American society, and intersectionality have a significant psychological and physiological impact on their lives. The group exists to create a community of staff, faculty, and students exploring identity and voice at the university. The group holds an event each month, and we are always looking for new collaborators.  Staff, faculty, and students who are interested in facilitating should contact the Luann Dummer Center for Women or Student Diversity & Inclusion Services.

All programs offered by the University of St. Thomas shall be readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. For details, call (651) 962-6315.
