Rutgers School of Public Health coordinator for Practice and Alumni Affairs, Ms. Sarah Kelly, was one of thirty individuals selected from around Rutgers University to participate in the Cultivating Inclusive and Transformational Environments (CITE) Learning Communities Program.
Throughout the Fall 2018-Spring 2019 academic year, CITE participants engaged in readings, discussions, events, and activities designed to increase intercultural knowledge and appreciation, improve understanding of issues relevant to equity and inclusion in higher education. The program, which is in its inaugural year, trained participants on how to cultivate an affirming campus climate in their work and workplace.
“I have been a part of the Rutgers community since I came to campus as an undergraduate in 2000, and know it is filled with people and groups who help make it an amazing place,” says Ms. Kelly. “The Cultivating Inclusive and Transformational Environments Learning Communities Program is one of those groups. I learned a lot and also really enjoyed the time with other people who were interested in making Rutgers a more equitable and inclusive space.”Tags: Friday Letter Submission
