Atlantic Students of Color

Co-founder and Director

Formed in 2016 by Mika Wiley, Alexis Cofield, and Andrea Granera. Atlantic Students of Color is an affinity group within the Atlantic Acting School dedicated to empowering students of color by providing a space in which they can be fully heard and ensure their voices are fully represented within Atlantic. The group hosts meetings weekly and consistently checks in with Atlantic and New York University administrators in order to continue work on improving conditions for students of color within the institution. After the founding team moved on, I held the position of Director until December 2017.
