Intercultural Resource Center

The Intercultural Resource Center promotes an inclusive campus culture, one where students are encouraged to engage through participation in initiatives and programs which embrace the diversity at Rutgers University-Newark. Our Center is devoted to promoting social justice and exploring intersectional and diversity issues within the RU-N campus and the larger Newark community. Through campus programming, student engagement, cultural immersion, and by providing forums for educational and social exchange, the center seeks to create distinctive opportunities for healthy discourse that encourages self-discovery, increased social awareness, and an appreciation of the cultural histories within and between communities on campus. We strive to equip students, faculty, and staff with the tools necessary to empower themselves, successfully navigate their environments, and positively impact the community at large.
