Student affairs student staff are tasked with developing communities with students from increasingly diverse backgrounds. Rutgers University has begun to implement a diversity training curriculum to prepare student staff to build community in a socially just way. Diversity curriculums move beyond “diversity days” or single sessions to provide a tiered and cohesive learning experience through a resident assistant’s employment. This session will provide an overview of the Rutgers curriculum, areas of growth, and provide strategies for adaptation to your home campus. The content of this session can be applied to units outside of residence life and housing.
