Thrive Here

The Division of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement houses the Educational Equity Group (EEG) led by Dr. Melissa Wooten. The EEG consists of our Federal TRIO programs (Upward Bound/Upward Bound Math-Science, Student Support Services, McNair Program), Graduate EOF), foundation partnerships and special initiatives, such as the Paul Robeson Success Institute. All of the educational equity initiatives serve historically underrepresented, low-income and/or first-generation students and aim to level the playing field ensuring that all students have what they need to thrive here at Rutgers. 

In addition, we partner with units across campus to broaden our reach and build the capacity of faculty and staff to understand the unique needs of our students and serve them well.
