B.I.G.E. Student Club

Beyond Incarceration: Greater Education (B.I.G.E.). Through our action, service and collective presence, we are breaking down stereotypes connected to being formerly incarcerated.

  • Connected by our backgrounds, united in our aspirations to support one another and succeed at Allan Hancock College
  • Bi-Weekly meetings geared towards: Breaking the stigma connected to being formerly incarcerated, peer support, mentoring and connections to campus resources
  • Meetings are open to all AHC students, including those who have experienced incarceration, those who have been impacted by the incarceration of someone else, or those who would ally with our communities
  • Opportunities to serve our larger Santa Maria community
