Clark College wants to share an upcoming event for students of color. Clark College Entry Services and the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion have rebranded their annual student of color open house (formally known as Gateways) to accommodate the pandemic and better fit the needs of our high school community. The workshop is titled Discovering College Confidence: A Virtual Event for Students of Color. You can find a full description of the event below.

High school students of color are invited to join this Clark College virtual workshop on tapping into inner power and college confidence.

Discovering College Confidence: A Virtual Event for Students of Color
Date: Wednesday, February 10
Time: 10:30am-12:00pm
Location: Zoom


As a student of color, you bring the unique gifts of your culture and family with you wherever you go, including college and your future career. The “college experience” is meant to be one of education and opportunity, but you may face an environment that does not celebrate or represent your identity. Join us to explore the strengths you already possess and connect with our college community!

During this virtual workshop, you will participate in a series of activities meant to:

  • address challenges that you may face as a student of color in college
  • provide you with strategies for resilience
  • highlight resources to support your academic journey

Attendees will hear from a Clark College keynote, then explore their inner power in breakout sessions. The event will end in a Q&A with current Clark College students of color.

Together we’ll explore the power of confidence and celebrate why you belong on a college campus! For questions, email Abby Thompson at
