The 2021 Alma Rutgers Defining Diversity Contest

The 2021 Alma Rutgers Defining Diversity Contest

Despite trying times and uncertainty, Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman encourages us to let moments of challenge inspire action. Reflect on her words and the events of 2020. Consider your personal experiences, the current social, political, and/or environmental conditions that exist in your community, your town, your country, and your world. How are you giving purpose to the “ache” that you have experienced and/or have been experienced by so many? How do you know that it has not been endured in vain? Please demonstrate your broad understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Students are invited to submit writing pieces, works of art, or multimedia that represent their reflection.
