RAPP Working with Local Universities

RAPP will be spending the weekend of February 12th-13th with students from Thomas More College and the College of Mt. St. Joseph at their inaugural Diversity Retreat!  Twenty-four students representing both universities are participating in an intensive two-day retreat with the theme Reflect. Understand. Value.

Social Justice League member Marjorie B (XXV) and RAPP Program Coordinator Rebecca (XXII) have been working with the leaders at the respective colleges to prepare and co-lead the retreat.

Throughout the weekend, participants will reflect on themselves in terms of their identity and values, develop understanding of their assumptions around difference, and reflect on the challenge to create inclusive communities.  They will explore and apply social justice theory as well as identify how to make a positive difference on their campuses.
