While we focus on students of color, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender students, international and graduate students, we've created new opportunities for everyone at UCR to build relationships and to promote a campus culture of acceptance and respect.
Common Ground Retreat
About 50 students will attend a weekend retreat to discuss social justice issues they are facing on campus and in their communities. The retreat is designed to build community among students from different backgrounds, who will work together on a year-long project. Get more information about this year's retreat here.
Speakers will be invited a few times each quarter to talk on a variety of topics relating to ethnic, gender or wellness issues. Each presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session with the audience.
Graduate Student Colloquia
Speakers will discuss topics including suicide, gender issues, balancing family and graduate studies, and transition issues as they releate to the graduate student body.
