Student Organizations

Kickstart is a student organization at the Colorado School of Mines dedicated to building an inclusive community that enables the sharing and exploration of diverse identities. In the past we’ve held a variety of events surrounding DI&A such as a discussion about AAPI Hate and a tech-equity focused Hackathon through the Computer Science Department. We work with many organizations including Fraternity and Sorority Life, the Arthur Lakes Library, and the Multicultural Engineering Program. Our current goals are to build a sustainable vehicle for DI&A efforts at Mines while also empowering Kickstart members to develop the skills necessary for creating social impact.  

The Latin American Student Association at Mines (LASAM) aims to celebrate the great diversity of Latin-American students at Colorado School of Mines, as well as welcome students who want to learn about our rich culture. In this spirit, LASAM is intended to be a vital instrument for integrating Latin-American students into campus life and sharing the culture of our countries. We also seek to help students navigate the personal, academic, and professional challenges of studying abroad. This association will be part of the International Student Council (ISC).
