RAPP Mission:  Fighting Oppression through Individual Awareness and Collective Action

RAPP's Branding Image: The RAPP Mission - Fighting Oppression Through Individual Awareness & Collective Action

RAPP - also known as the Racial Awareness Program - focuses on three areas:  Intensive development programs, alumni engagement, and outreach.

  • A 9-month intensive experiential learning program where students challenge, debate, and educate each other on issues of social positioning and social justice.  
  • A 5-day intensive that begins two weeks before fall semester classes begin, where students develop knowledge and skills related to racial justice and inclusive leadership.


  • Free workshops and trainings on campus and throughout Greater Cincinnati focused on building crosscultural communication skills, self-awareness around social positioning, social justice issues, and developing agency in fighting oppression.

  • An alumni program for graduates of RAPP intensives where students continue their exploration of social justice as well as develop facilitation and peer education skills.
