Third World Alliance (T.W.A.)
Third World Alliance is a student organization dedicated to promoting inclusion, multicultural diversity, and enhancing pluralism on campus and the Worcester community. Pluralism is a condition where several distinct ethnic, religious, and racial communities live side by side; willing to affirm each other’s dignity, ready to benefit from each other’s experiences, and quick to acknowledge and accept each other’s contributions to the common welfare. To achieve this goal, the organization offers activities and programs during the year that inform, educate, enrich, and encourage social interaction.
Purpose: To promote diversity (pluralism), unity, and change.
