At PoCC meetings, students and adults discuss current events and personal experiences with the goal of finding connections and support and strengthening their abilities to affect change at Pingree and in the world. PoCC works to integrate many different cultures and ideas and seeks to share learning with the Pingree community at large.

Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA)
Pingree’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance is a student group that promotes open dialogue and education about sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression. We strive to create an inclusive school community that respects and supports individuals of all sexual orientations or gender identities, and to build a future in which all diversity is appreciated as a positive and enriching aspect of our human experience. All members of the Pingree community are invited to attend bi-weekly meetings and to participate in events such as the GLSEN Day of Silence.
Student Equity and Inclusion Committee
The Student Equity and Inclusion Committee is composed of student leaders who focus on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the Pingree community. The committee aims to bring issues of importance to students to the attention of the Pingree student body, faculty, staff, and administration.
