2022-2023 Task Forces

Established by the Board

Purpose: Task Forces are small teams that are assembled by the current Board. Each Task Force is comprised of students from within SGB as well as students outside of SGB. They are created to achieve a specific goal (or a few small but related goals) that are designated high priority and high collaboration tasks by the Board. Membership on a task force is by appointment, though anyone who is interested in joining a task force is encouraged to email the chair of that task force or the President of the Board.

Students of Color in Solidarity (SOCS) Task Force

Mission: The Students of Color in Solidarity (SOCS) Task Force works to build a community amongst communities of color at the University of Pittsburgh. In this community, we hold a safe space for vulnerable, introspective, and meaningful conversations about our specifically underserved and underrepresented groups at Pitt. By openly discussing how we, as student leaders, can better support each other and promote sustainable collaboration amongst our groups, we will also work together to develop a more unified voice with which to approach the University for additional support. With acknowledging the specific needs of different communities, the ultimate goal of this task force is to build solidarity amongst students of color within the University, a primarily white institution, and promote a sustainable, collaborative community.
