Student Activities & Leadership Development

Join Accelerating Racial Justice 2014!

The Office of Student Activities & Leadership Development offers the five-day Accelerating Racial Justice intensive for students to build their awareness, knowledge, and skills related to racial justice and inclusive leadership.  Developed collaboratively by students and staff from throughout UC, this leadership program is an excellent option for Bearcats interested in social justice who can't do the year-long commitment RAPP requires.

Program Overview
Monday, August 11 to Friday, August 15, 2014
Grailville Retreat Center (transportation provided)
FREE to UC students!

Through full participation in the 5-day program, participants:

  • Develop relationships with 25 other Bearcats from all over the university
  • Enhance their understanding of racial justice and inclusive leadership
  • Build a personal foundation and a supportive community to continue building racial justice and an inclusive leadership community at UC

Accelerating Racial Justice’s curriculum is based in best practices in the realms of social justice education, intergroup dialogue, and inclusive leadership development.  

After the intensive is completed, participants are welcomed into the RAPPORT community and are eligible for the RAPP Social Justice Peer Educator Certificate program.
