Working for Belonging and Equity
We work 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.

LASO gala celebration will be held on Thursday, Dec. 1, at the Donovan Dining Center.
Every community owes its existence and vitality to generations from around the world who contributed their hopes, dreams, and energy to making the history that led to this moment. Some were brought here against their will, some were drawn to leave their distant homes in hope of a better life, and some have lived on this land for more generations than can be counted. Truth and acknowledgment are critical to building mutual respect and connection across all barriers of heritage and difference. We begin this effort to acknowledge what has been buried by honoring the truth. We are standing on the ancestral lands of the Narragansett and Wampanoag People. We pay respects to their elders past and present. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together here today.
