The group meets throughout the week to discuss and workshop pieces for the upcoming show. Members can also work outside of these meetings either alone or together in order to finalize projects. The show itself is a series of pieces. Pieces can include any combination of performers, dependent only on the restraints of time and on the members of the cast. The group tries to explore different ways of thinking about the relationships between the various art forms, in order to challenge the very labels that separate them. Additionally, Midnight Cabaret takes on larger projects that embody in larger scopes the values it expresses in every weekly show.
Model United Nations
Mission: The objective of Model UN is to seek, through discussion, negotiation and debate, solutions to the various problems of the world: e.g. questions of human rights, protection of the environment, economic development, disarmament, the problems of youth and of refugees, as well as the more critical issues of war and peace. Delegates, in seeking solutions to these problems, can learn to break away from narrow, national self-interest and develop true international cooperation. The research and preparation required, the adoption of views and attitudes other than their own, the involvement and interaction with so many other students from around the world, all combine to provide a deep insight into the world's problems, to make students aware of the causes of conflict between nations and to lead them to a better understanding of the interests and motivations of others. Thus, MUN, through its conferences, attempts to fulfill the aims and goals set by founders of the United Nations in the Preamble to the Charter of the United Nations: "To practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good as neighbors."

Queer People of Color (QPOC) (Inactive)
Mission: Queer People of Color or QPOC's mission is to serve students, faculty and staff of color who assume a queer or questioning sexual identity by creating a safe space for their intellectual thought. This is especially important on a campus and in a society where that thought has been given credence or validity as an entity of its own worthy of individual study. QPOC exists as a way to correct this and to reaffirm the legitimacy of its club body. QPOC proposes to be an inclusive group, allowing for open discussions among those of varying sexual, social, ethnic, and gender identities. An ultimate focus, however, will remain anchored on issues of non-heteronormative queer sexuality and gender that we often complicate by the perceptions and realities of racial identity. QPOC also proposes to be a sort of mobile group, with the various other SLC clubs. This is an attempt to further engage the greater SLC community with its issues.
Queer Voice Coalition (QVC)
Mission: The Sarah Lawrence Queer Voice Coalition stands to provide a supportive, informed, and stimulating environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, queer, questioning, and allied students.

We are entirely student run, and work hard throughout the year to solicit submissions for our magazine and to ultimately produce a tasteful and professional publication.

The troop is open to all, and no one is required to strip. We provide workshops on various topics and techniques, and invite guest performers to share their experience in the burlesque world with the Sarah Lawrence community.
Mission: In order to write a well crafted screenplay, one must have access to a community of fellow screen writers who are willing to share their own work and offer constructive criticism to one another.

Smaller, Simpler, Smarter Government

Through workshops and showcases we will provide an environment where music is not only made, but also heard. The Songwriters Collective at Sarah Lawrence College brings together students who have any interest in creating music; whether you can sing, play an instrument, or jot lyrics on the backs of napkins at coffee shops, may this group be a place where we can collaborate and simply jam like we've never jammed before!
The Soundstage (Inactive)
Mission: The Soundstage is an outlet for the ambitious. Our productions challenge Sarah Lawrence's most passionate directors, performers, and designers to think big and fully realize their creative visions. We tend towards works that highlight music or language—which may as well be the same thing—and aim to build campus community with each event. Through relationships with other student groups and recent alumni, we hope to be a source of constant opportunity for every SLC student. Our school is sometimes torn between pushing boundaries and honoring its history; if there's a way to balance innovation and tradition, The Soundstage will find it. We'll just play it by ear.

We strive to promote awareness and an ever deeper understanding of the language, images, and policies that impact and define us as a people. We celebrate the diversity of Latinas/os and our own intersecting identities, while remaining critical of the construction of race, class, ethnicity, language, sexuality, gender, orientation, and self-image within our own identities and the communities to which we belong.
Mission: In the spirit of community and service, we unite in the quest to find our own truths, and promote love in the web of life.
Mission: Since 2008, SLC VANGUARD has collected, created, and publicized nonfiction writing by Sarah Lawrence undergraduates.

Mission: The Worker’s Appreciation Dinner is an annual event coordinated by students to celebrate the hard work and importance of the many workers on this campus. In the past years we have given out invitations to the following departments: AVI, Maintenance, Security, ABM, Bookstore, Post Office, and Duplication. Each department is vital in making sure this campus functions properly. We cater the event to the workers and their families and friends, making sure that they have as enjoyable a time as possible. Previously, this event was sponsored by UNIDAD, Harambee, and other Common Ground organizations. However, this year we are truly trying to outreach to the greater SLC community, while still maintaining ties to Common Ground to encourage a greater participation in planning and putting on this event. Ultimately we want to demonstrate our immense gratitude to the workers and their families by strengthening the bond between students and workers.
