Despite verbal and written commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion at Rutgers-Camden, far too many instances of injustice, bias, discrimination, and social identity threatening situations take place on campus. Moreover, victims of these instances are rarely afforded proper resolution. To resolve this issue, I propose to create a robust DEI continuing education and reconciliation program that would be implemented as a part of the orientation and onboarding process of new employees and a part of the continued professional development of current employees.
