“The myriad situations that I have experienced while leading and participating in student organizations have provided me with many friendships and fostered a deeper understanding of the complexities of effective communication. As a leader, I have facilitated the diffusion of ideas by catalyzing activities for diverse populations.”
In 1986, following a series of racial incidents, University of Cincinnati students requested an ongoing program to help them bridge racial conflict and create understanding. Although there had been some attention given to racial issues, this was the first student initiated request for a sustained program. The Racial Awareness Pilot Project (RAPP), designed by Student Affairs and Services staff member Linda Bates Parker and a student steering committee, emerged from this request. In the Spring of 1990, the Racial Awareness Pilot Project was recognized as an official program on campus, thus becoming the Racial Awareness Program. Because of community and campus familiarity with the RAPP acronym and logo, the two P’s (RAPP) remained.
