Join us for Leading Towards Justice in the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: A Keynote by Angela Rye

Students at Rutgers University—New Brunswick participate in all kinds of activism—they attend rallies and protests, run for positions in Rutgers University Student Assembly, and start political organizations to make their voices heard on-campus. For the rest of January, the Cultural Center Collaborative in the Division of Student Affairs will be providing a program on social justice and activism that students can tap into: its annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Series. 

On an unseasonably warm December morning, more than 2,000 runners participated in the Rutgers Big Chill 5K to benefit Winter Wishes, an annual holiday-themed event that provides clothing and toys to children ages 3-5 in New Brunswick preschool programs, and the Rutgers Student Food Pantry, which provides food to Rutgers students experiencing food insecurities.
