STUDENT LIFEVolunteer Center

Students working in cooperation with the Career Development Office and the ASPC staff established a student-operated Volunteer Center to make students aware of the opportunities for volunteering and to help coordinate and facilitate student service of all types. In its first year, 104 Pomona students participated in community volunteer activities through the center.

Occupation of Alexander Hall

A group of students seeking to increase the racial diversity of the faculties and student bodies of The Claremont Colleges occupied Alexander Hall in early February, leaving peacefully after two days. A total of about 50 students from throughout The Claremont Colleges took part in the protest, which began when students entered the building shortly after it had been unlocked by housekeeping personnel, locked the doors and papered the windows with such slogans as “Building closed due to racism,” and “Educate me and you educate yourselves.” The protest was apparently sparked by a rumor that a search committee attempting to fill a joint Intercollegiate Department of Black Studies/Pomona College English Department position had failed to agree on any of three finalists. Protesters also cited Scripps College’s decision to abandon a search for a professor of Chicano Studies. The College agreed to establish a task force to review and recommend means to strengthen student involvement in hiring, renewal and promotion procedures.
