What is BIPOC? And how/why do we use it at MSA?

BIPOC is an acronym that stands for Black, Indigenous and People of Color. BIPOC is a term inclusive of all students of color, including African/African American, Latinx/e, Caribbean, APIDA (Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi American), Middle Eastern and North African (MENA)/Arab, Indigenous/Native and multiracial students. BIPOC as a term attempts to center the compounding systems and histories that inform centering Black liberation and Indigenous sovereignty. Acronyms like BIPOC are always changing, evolving, and imperfect, but attempts to name an inclusive and intersectional space for students of color who are historically marginalized and underrepresented. This word is not the end of the work.
