Diversity at the University

Community Action Fair


This event is presented by members of the University of Rochester’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

Given recent reports of violence and antagonism both locally and nationally, the “Community Action Fair” will serve as a call to the people of Rochester and the University Community to put aside difference and focus our energies on supporting each other through community action. This non-partisan event serves to remind individuals of the richness and power of our community’s diversity and affirm that both the University of Rochester and the broader Rochester community is a welcoming place for all people regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, political affiliation or any other aspect of individual’s identities.

We open this event for community service or service-based organizations to use this as a platform to build comradery with other organizations and connect with the Greater Rochester Community by raising awareness of awesome organizations and providing volunteer opportunities.

Members of the Diversity and Inclusion Committee are GRATEFUL for the Sponsorship from the following Offices:
Office of Admissions, Office of Alumni Relations, Office of Faculty Development and Diversity, Office of Global Engagement, Rochester Center for Community Leadership, Rochester Victory Alliance, Wilmot Cancer Center and Wilson Commons Student Activities.
