Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Rutgers is committed to making diversity a way of university life, where all members of our community feel welcome, valued and respected. Rutgers–Camden students, faculty and visitors will find resources to learn about diverse communities and their challenges, connect with peers, and receive support.

Initiatives

To advocate campus-wide inclusivity, we promote initiatives that support diverse communities and raise awareness of the complex identity issues inherent in the lives of Rutgers–Camden students.

Interfaith & Religion

The Interfaith Chaplains Advisory Council, a network of faith leaders and faith communities, provides spiritual support to Rutgers–Camden students and the campus community. In the Campus Center, students will also find the Interfaith Room, a sacred space for individuals and groups on campus to exercise faith and spiritual practice for the purpose of connecting to spiritual, cultural, moral, holistic and higher power experiences.

Race & Ethnicity

The Courageous Conversations series carefully and critically addresses race and intersecting identities issues that help the Rutgers–Camden community process inequality. We also host the Person of Color Mentorship program and brunch, which seeks to offer a mentor-to-mentee affinity partnership, professional networking opportunities, academic support, socio-emotional support, co-curricular activities and leadership development.

LGBTQIA+

Rutgers–Camden hosts comprehensive support programs, weekly meetings, training sessions and more to ensure an inclusive environment for LGBTQIA+ students on our campus.
