Emphasizing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Gains in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion stands as a top priority for our College and the UniversityIn 2020, as our country reacted to the inequalities facing Black, Indigenous and People of Color, our students and their professors used their own voices to participate in events such as the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’s We Are Not OK: Injustice, Action and Healing series and the student-organized Juneteenth march on campus.

Our college launched a new DEI Blog to highlight powerful voices and impactful events, and new student organizations, such as Women of Westby, formed to support student initiatives. Programs, including the Rowan Writing Center and the Rowan University Art Gallery, continue to pioneer experiences for all students.
