Co-op Safe Spaces

There is a special application process to join Third World Co-op (TWC) and Third World Social Justice Co-op (TWSJ).

People who wish to become a member of TWC or TWSJ are encouraged to submit an application, which will be reviewed by the relevant co-op selection committee. (Former members of TWC do not need to reapply; students who resided in TWSJ in the semester immediately prior also do not need to reapply.)

Third World Co-op (TWC)

Third World Co-op (TWC) serves as a safe space for students who have been traditionally and structurally disenfranchised. TWC provides a forum which encourages activism and political discussions, and fosters a strong community which promotes coalition building through dialogue among people of different racial, cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Third World Social Justice Co-op (TWSJ)

Third World Social Justice Co-op (TWSJ), located on the third floor of Harkness Hall, is a housing co-op whose members demonstrate personal interest in themes of social justice and race, with the goal of fostering racial unity, social justice and equity while working to address and counteract racism. Housing members are required to participate and be actively involved in the space.
