The Unity Center is a warm and welcoming space that affirms and promotes equity for students that have been historically marginalized and disenfranchised.

It does this by working with campus and community partners to create a climate where all students belong and have equitable opportunities and outcomes, offering transformative workshops for student centered spaces, and initiating restorative practices where there has been conflict.

The Unity Center houses identity-specific resources for students of color, LGBTQ+ students, students that experience gender disparity, students with compromised citizenship status, first generation students, and students seeking interfaith services. Because trauma and conflict often go hand in hand with many of these communities, the Unity Center is also home to RIC’s restorative practices, and conflict resolution services.
