Student Clubs

In-person student services are suspended until further notice. The Support Services page lists services and resources available remotely. Please check College of Marin Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates and Resources for the latest information related to COVID-19.

                                                        

      

Associated Students of College of Marin (ASCOM) and clubs at the College of Marin (COM) are student initiated and run. Involvement outside of the classroom provides opportunities to develop valuable leadership skills, explore areas of interest and passion, and prepare students for transfer to a four year institution, or future career opportunities.  Students learn effective communication skills, cross cultural experiences across populations, how to work with others, and make friends.

Due to COVID-19 guidance, all campus events have been suspended until further notice as to limit in person contact and large gatherings.  We encourage all clubs to set up conference calls to conduct meetings.  If you need support, please contact your advisor or the Office of Student Activities and Advocacy at studentactivities@marin.edu.  Thank you for your cooperation.   

Interclub Council

The Inter-Club Council (ICC) is a student run organization that oversees the work and progress of student clubs on Campus and is also an auxiliary committee of ASCOM for this matter. ICC is an open floor for student clubs to be able to collaborate, share ideas, and discuss any other student interest related topics together as a team during the ICC Meetings, in which each student club is represented by an ICC representative that has been elected. ICC aims to serve as a bridge for ASCOM, Clubs, and the student body to have the opportunity to build a community, advocate for students, and improve social life on Campus.
