Building Inclusive Community

Building Inclusive Community


As an integral part of the university’s central leadership, the University Equity and Inclusion Office provides accountability and encouragement to our beloved community as together we build a better Rutgers through diversity.

What Does Beloved Mean?

President Jonathan Holloway describes Rutgers as a beloved community, one in which all members are working together and are heard, respected, and valued. A beloved community is a diverse and inclusive one, complex, in pursuit of perfection, and committed to nurturing the aspirations that advance that pursuit.

Speak Up! is a call to action for all members of the university community to respond when they observe bigotry and to be vigilant about disrupting personally held bias.
