The goal of the Truth Racial Healing and Transformation Center (TRHT) enterprise is to create a positive narrative about race in the community; to promote racial healing activities on campus and in the community; and to erase structural barriers to equal treatment and opportunity within the economic, legal, educational, and residential components of the community.

The Rites of Passage Ceremony is a pre-commencement celebration to honor Black and Latinx-identified students who through resolute persistence have successfully completed an Undergraduate or Graduate degree at Rutgers University–Camden. This year’s celebration will be the inaugural iteration on the Rutgers-Camden campus.

This series strives to provide timely and ongoing conversation with scholars and activists on trending topics, domestic and global, that challenge and amplify our understanding of global civility and humaneness. Topics include conversations on racism, discrimination, classism, xenophobia, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and others that challenge our vision of a beloved community, at home and/or abroad.
