RAPP 25 Year Reunion Photos - Here They All Are!

After a summer of well-intentioned but not well followed-through-upon plans to release the RAPP 25 Year Reunion photos in slow bursts, I've decided it's time to let it all out!

Below is a link to a photo album of the best 161 photos taken by our photographer, Sam Greene, at the event!
RAPP 25 Year Reunion

Assuming I can get the html code to embed on the UC website system, the photo album will also go up as a slideshow on the reunion page on our regular website.

Impact of RAPP XXVI

Though it's taken me all summer to code and analyse the data, I'm ready to announce the  pre- and post-test comparison of RAPP XXVI!  This is our second year being able to provide this information. 

As with any survey-based study, there are definitely limitations to the information pulled from the data. The survey instrument itself and the way in which the data was recorded and analyzed are all up for question.

Below is the overview of the report.  The full copy - including data/analysis limitations - should be posted on the RAPP website shortly.  In the meantime, if you'd like a copy please send me an email to request it!  --Rebecca L

Curriculum and Measurement

The flagship program of the Racial Awareness Program is the RAPP 9-month experiential social justice education program.  The 2010-11 class of RAPP was the 26th group of University of Cincinnati students to participate in this program.  As such, they are known as RAPP XXVI.

The curricular objectives for the RAPP 9-month program were established in Fall 2008 as:
  • Develop relationships with new people
  • Develop ability to communicate across difference for learning and understanding
  • Recognize that oppression is systemic, pervasive, interlocking, and imbedded
  • Appreciate cultural difference
  • Recognize own agency

The RAPP XXVI experience was facilitated by the RAPP Program Coordinator, an AmeriCorps Public Ally apprentice, and a Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies undergraduate intern.  Following the set of session goals that constitute the RAPP Curriculum, these three facilitators developed 11 sessions and three overnight retreats utilizing social justice education resources and intergroup dialogue practices.  Five student volunteers also helped facilitate the RAPP XXVI group process as peer educators and mentors – these five Peer Leaders had previously participated in the RAPP 9-month program and received pre-service and on-going training in social justice peer education.

The pre- and post-test instrument was developed and first implemented in Fall 2009.  RAPP XXVI is the second group on which it has been administered.  The pre-test was administered at the second meeting of the group and the post-test was administered at the eleventh (penultimate).

New to the 2010-11 analysis is exploration of the impact of participation on results, measured by amount of sessions attended.  The group was separated into two portions: Those that attended 81% or more of sessions (n=24; referred to from here out at “high commitment group”) and those that attended 76% or fewer sessions (n=17; referred to as “lower commitment group”).

Also new this year was the addition of three open-ended questions at the end of the post-test to gather general feedback from the group in reflecting on the 9-month experience

General Results

Sixty-eight students committed to RAPP XXVI, 59 of these graduated through the program in May 2011 (86.8% retention).  Forty of the 59 RAPP XXVI graduates completed both the pre- and post-test (67.8% of graduates).

All participants committed to participating in all RAPP XXVI meetings and retreats.  Participation was explored in detail in each test section due to the unusually low participation rate of RAPP XXVI members compared to the previous two years in which data was kept.  While ten students (17% of group) attended every meeting and retreat and another ten missed only one meeting or retreat during the year, the overall average for participation was 78%.  Thus, in analysis, the group was divided into “high commitment” (higher than the average, or those with 81-100% participation) and lower commitment (lower than the average, or those with 76% or lower participation).

Key Findings

By section, the key highlights are:

·         Identities – Overall, participants reported an increase in racial awareness.  When divided into dominant and subordinated group identities, White/Caucasian participants reported a strong increase in racial awareness and cisgendered men reported a moderate increase gender awareness.  Students who identified as identities other than heterosexual reported a strong increase in sexuality awareness.

·         Key Words – Overall, participants demonstrated an increase ability to define the provided key words (oppression, privilege, internalized oppression, ally, social construct, and intersectionality).  The greatest demonstrated increase was for intersectionality.

·         Challenging Others – Overall, participants reported being more likely to verbally express disagreement with statements they found offensive. The biggest reported increase was with expressing disagreement with strangers and professors.

·         Communicating – Overall, participants reported a slight increase in use of cross-cultural communication strategies with acquaintances.

·         Exploring Racism – Overall, participants were more likely to identify the connection with racism in individual, institutional, and social/cultural scenarios.  The greatest change overall occurred with recognizing connections to institutionalized racism.

·         Participation – Participants' level of commitment demonstrated impacts in the following areas:
o   Identities – High commitment participants demonstrated a strong increase in racial awareness, compared to a decrease in the lower commitment group.
o   Key Words – On all key words except for internalized oppression, the high commitment group demonstrated a greater increase in ability to define the key words.  The high commitment group had a substantially stronger increase on intersectionality, privilege, oppression, and ally.
o   Challenging Others – The high commitment group reported an increase in expressing disagreement in all relationship categories except for roommate (which held steady from pre- to post-test).  The lower commitment group reported a decrease in expressing disagreement in four of the eight relationship categories, holding steady in three others and demonstrating a small increase with professors.
o   Communicating – When combined, the group reported an increase in use of cross-cultural communication strategies in only one of three categories (acquaintances).  When split along commitment, the high commitment group demonstrated an increase with all three (acquaintances, good friends, and close family members) whereas the lower commitment group reported a decrease in use of these strategies with all three categories.
o   Exploring Racism – Participation had a mixed impact in recognizing different levels of racism.

·         Feedback – In response to open-ended questions on the post-test:
o   The five most commonly reported words to describe the RAPP XXVI experience were educational, fun, eye-opening, enlightening, and life-changing. 
o   The most commonly reported dislikes within the experience were around the time involvement of three-hour meetings, attendance issues, and issues within the process. 
o   The most commonly cited take-aways were multiple perspectives on issues/experiences, relationships, knowledge, and a sense of agency.

Included at the end of the full report are important-to-note limitations to the data and analysis.

UC ingot   The University of Cincinnati is represented among a citywide coalition of education, religious and civic leaders that is organizing a community-wide observance in remembrance of 9/11. The event, free and open to the public, will take place from 3 to 4:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal. 

9/11 Memorial on McMicken Commons
9/11 Memorial on McMicken Commons

There will be activities at the Cincinnati Museum Center from noon to 5 p.m.

In announcing the event to the UC community, UC President Gregory H. Williams stated that as the president of City College of New York on Sept. 11, 2001, he would “never forget the shock of the planes hitting the Twin Towers, and the horror and destruction caused by those despicable acts. We still mourn for the people who lost their lives, not just at the Twin Towers but also in Washington where American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Penn., where United Airlines Flight 93 crashed as passengers courageously attempted to overcome the hijackers.”
UC Blue Ash College will be holding a ceremony earlier in the morning to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11. The ceremony takes place at 8:25 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 11, in 119 Muntz Hall on the UC Blue Ash College Campus.

9/11 Memorial

A living memorial to the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks stands tall on UC’s MainStreet corridor that blends living and learning though the heart of campus. Located on the west side of McMicken Commons, the memorial displays two Princeton American elm trees – a living symbol of the Twin Towers – and a polished, granite wall that serves as a bench where students, faculty and staff can reflect while gazing at the memorial. The memorial was completed in 2003.

UC researchers offered the following contributions as we look back on 9/11 and look ahead to the battle on terrorism:

Leadership Scholars Looking for Coaches

From Leadership Scholars:

The Leadership Scholars Program is looking for successful, caring professional/young professional leaders to get involved with inner-city youth leaders in Cincinnati.

Leadership Scholars empowers inner-city students with knowledge, inspiration, and confidence to reach their full potential as leaders.  We work with more than 300 students in grades 7 - 12, providing them with leadership training and surrounding them with positive role models and mentors. Our middle school students work in teams with high school mentors, meeting once a week after school to further develop their leadership skills.

Leadership Scholars is currently looking for coaches who can attend these weekly meetings and provide guidance and support to the students. If you can commit to one hour a week (same day, same time throughout the year, Monday through Thursday; earliest meetings are 2:45 - 3:45, and latest ones are 3:30 - 4:30), you can make a huge difference in the lives of inner-city youth leaders in Cincinnati.

Campus Discussion on African American Student Enrollment on Uptown Campus - Aug 23rd!

It has been called to my attention by colleagues that there is concern about fall enrollment for African American students on the Uptown Campus and the university’s commitment to diversity.  The numbers cited in these reports reflect current enrollment numbers for the fall but are not inclusive of summer starts (students currently enrolled and will be enrolled fall quarter).  While we have work to do, please know that these numbers are 8% greater than this time last year.

I invite you to join me on Tuesday, August 23, 12 Noon in 425TUC to discuss, in particular, the current status of projected enrollment for the fall, but more generally, our commitment to diversity. 

I greatly appreciate your support for something that we all care deeply about.

UC ingot   Half of the University of Cincinnati’s tenure track faculty are among the nation’s sociologists who are presenting on the many facets of social conflict, the theme of the 106th annual meeting of the American Sociological Association Aug. 20-23 in Las Vegas.

“Social conflict is constantly in the headlines, in the breaking news, but also under the surface of social life,” says ASA President Randall Collins. “Wherever there is change, struggle or domination, there is conflict.”

UC research by faculty as well as graduate students is regularly screened and selected to be presented at the annual meeting, which draws more than 5,000 sociologists.

Here are highlights of the some of the UC research to be presented this month:
Executions in Black and White: Oppression and Resistance in Post-Emancipation Executions in the SouthUC sociologist Annulla Linders analyzes newspaper accounts of black executions in the old South, and uncovers a social history that intersects race with crime and punishment.

Analyzing the Avon Lady: Direct Sellers Work Decisions in Urban EcuadorErynn Masi de Casanova, a UC assistant professor of sociology, presents on how women are getting a leg up on finding work in urban Ecuador.

Long-Term, Intimate Partnerships Can Promote Unhealthy HabitsCorinne E, Reczek, a UC assistant professor of sociology, reports three distinct findings into how cohabiting couples believe they directly and indirectly contribute to one another’s unhealthy habits.

Good Guy Loitering: Embodying Belonging in a Neighborhood Undergoing ChangeAmanda Staight, a doctoral student in UC’s Department of Sociology, begins an examination of what’s considered ‘good’ and ‘bad’ loitering in a Cincinnati community.

The ASA is a non-profit membership association dedicated to serving sociologists in their work, advancing sociology as a science and profession and promoting the contributions and use of sociology to society.
UC’s Department of Sociology in the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences has faculty with national reputations and award-winning publications and research grants.

Reasons to Join RAPP #3: We're on a Mission!

Part 3 in an on-going series.

RAPP's mission is a powerful one:  Fighting oppression through individual awareness and collective action.

This mission drives everything we do, from our organizational structures and practices through our more visible work in the community.

Joining RAPP engages you in this fight against oppression.

Here are just a few notes on how we engage this mission:

  • Fighting oppression:  We approach oppression as a complex system that we are all a part of - we can all work to either maintain the oppressive status quo or work to interrupt it to make a more socially just world.
  • Fighting oppression:  We are a "race and" organization.  This means that while we heavily emphasize working on fighting racism we intentionally have chosen to fight oppression in its many forms.  To do this, we explore issues of race as well as other issues of social identity and social positioning.  In our 9-month program we heavily explore race, gender, and sexuality as well as touch on other topics.  In our alumni group and outreach work we explore a wide variety of social justice issues, intercultural communication skills, and inclusive leadership development.
  • Individual awareness: RAPP and RAPPORT work is best-practice based social justice education.  As described in Teaching for Diversity and Social Justice, 2nd Ed. (Routledge, 2007):
"Social justice education is both an interdisciplinary conceptual framework for analyzing multiple forms of oppression and a set of interactive, experiential pedagogical principles to help learners understand the meaning of social difference and oppression both in the social system and in their personal lives.  The goal of social justice education is to enable people to develop the critical analytical tools necessary to understand oppression and their own socialization within oppressive systems, and to develop a sense of agency and capacity to interrupt and change oppressive patterns and behaviors in themselves and in the institutions and communities of which they are a part."
  • Individual awareness:  All leaders and staff of RAPP engage in continual self-work, including self-directed readings, group training, and structured reflections work. Through this, we strive to live Malcolm X's words:  "We can't teach what we don't know; We can't lead where we won't go." 
  • Collective action:  A lot of the collective action RAPP engages in is through social justice education.  We connected with over 1300 people last school year through our outreach work, including UC students & staff, students at other colleges & universities in the area, and community agencies.
  • Collective action:  In the more traditional collective action vein, our Public Ally puts together six events each year that unite RAPPers in a common activity.  Three of these are community service events, three are campus or city activities in which we participate.

RAPP Public Ally 2011-12: Marjorie Bledsoe

We received great news in the RAPP Office today:  Our match for our 2011-12 Public Allies apprenticeship!

Please join me in welcoming Marjorie Bledsoe to her new role, which will start on September 1st!

Marjorie has been a UC student and dedicated RAPPer since fall 2009.  She has studied fine arts and a variety of other arts and marketing at both UC and Hocking College.  Along with being a student, Marjorie has worked in arts and education at Funk­­e Fired Arts, Starbrick Gallery Cooperative, and Appalachia - Science in the Public Interest.

Marjorie is a graduate of RAPP XXV, in which she was selected by her peers and leaders as recipient of the Terence L Jones Diversity Award.  She was a Peer Leader with RAPP XXVI, earned her RAPP Social Justice Peer Educator Certificate this past spring, and co-facilitated an two-day inclusive leadership retreat with me for student leaders of Thomas More College and the College of Mt. St. Joseph this past winter. 
I’m very excited to have someone with such great skills, commitment, and passion to make the year ahead RAPP’s best yet!

UC ingot   The Sarah Grant Barber Outstanding Advising Award, given annually by the University of Cincinnati Undergraduate Academic Advising Association (UCUAADA) in memory of late DAAP academic advisor Sarah Barber, recognizes individuals who believe in advocacy for all students, support for fellow advisors, and creativity and optimism for the job. This year, all three winners are advisors in the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences.

Kennedy has “an extraordinary passion for student success and retention that is truly unsurpassed,” a colleague wrote in his nomination letter. “His sincere interest in each of his individual student’s success is evident.” The nominator also praised Kennedy’s ability to manage multiple projects successfully, noting that he receives consistently high ratings and evaluations in all of his efforts, from teaching the “Discovering UC” course and advising exploratory students to organizing A&S orientation sessions and presenting at national conferences. Students also recognized Kennedy’s commitment to advising. “His sincere concern for me inspired me to stay motivated,” wrote one student nominator. “When I felt isolated and hopeless because of all the red tape at the university, he was the single most important faculty member in helping me feel accepted and valued.” Another student shared, “Over the past two years of working with Doug, I have talked so highly of him around my family, that when my brother comes to UC in the fall, he has requested Doug as his advisor too!”

Tonge Mack’s interest in increasing graduation rates of African-American students led her to develop two successful mentoring programs: PR1ZE (Putting Retention 1st in the Zest for Excellence) and S.T.E.E.R (Striving to Transform, Enrich, Empower and Reward). She also created a Cultural Competence Training Series for the academic advising staff in the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences. A faculty member who collaborates frequently with Tonge Mack explained that the mentoring programs she coordinates are so successful because she is “dedicated to student success” and has “strong interpersonal skills to facilitate positive student outcomes.” A student nominator shared that Tonge Mack’s mentoring “became a strong force behind my success...It is through emulating some of her leadership styles, positive attitude and professionalism that I became well-rounded in my own endeavors and recently became a recipient of a Presidential Leadership Medal of Excellence.”

Newman has been coordinating and championing advising for her department since the days of using poster boards to announce advisors’ office hours during priority registration. “Our methods have become more sophisticated, thanks to Lisa’s efforts to stay on top of new systems,” a colleague wrote in her nomination letter, “but the message has consistently been sent that we take our student advising in the Department of Communication very seriously.” The nominator also shared that, “Lisa is the most sought after advisor...Even when the students have graduated, they continue to contact Lisa to update her on their achievements.”  A student nominator explained that Newman was both an advisor and a teacher: “She has taught me what it means to go out into the real world, show everyone what you have to offer, and she has taught me what it means to be the best person you can.”
