RAPP offers free programming to the University of Cincinnati and the Greater Cincinnati community on a variety of diversity, multicultural, social justice, and communication topics.
We will work with interested groups to develop a program to suit their needs on most any topic, and can make referrals on topics we feel others can do better than we.
Common topics we present on include:
- Self-awareness: Identifying and exploring our own social identities, such as race, gender, sexuality, religion, class, etc.;
- Campus awareness: Exploring diversity at UC, including statistical diversity and campus resources on race, gender, sexuality, ability, and religion;
- Just Community: Exploring the UC Just Community initiative and identifying ways we can create a just and caring community;
- Effective Communication Strategies: Exploring key concepts in crosscultural communication and how to use them to improve communication;
- Communication around Triggers: Identifying our own triggers and common triggers and strategizing about how to respond when triggered that promote learning;
After doing one or more of the above topics, have us back for more work! Topics we'll do after some prep work (or if you've already done work on the above together) include:
- Allyship: Exploring a holistic concept of allies and identifying how to develop effective ally skills.
- Power & Privilege: Exploring how social power and unearned privilege manifest and how to become an agent of change fighting oppression.
