Alumnae at Homecoming

This year’s Douglass College spirit tent was buzzing with red pine pride at the 2022 Homecoming celebration! On October 22, 2022, alumnae, staff, and students came together to celebrate all things Douglass before the Rutgers Homecoming football game. Attendees participated in raffles, current students connected with alumnae, and staff spoke to guests about the power of the Douglass Difference. Our community is at its strongest when we come together to share the uniquely transformative nature of the Douglass journey. The College thanks everyone who stopped by the tent to celebrate!

At Douglass, diversity, equity, and inclusion is expansive, offering a wide array of initiatives to serve students from a multitude of unique experiences—including those who have had to take alternative paths to the typical college experience. During the month of November, the College is celebrating its thriving population of nontraditional students—students over the age of 23 pursuing a college education—and raising awareness for the challenges they face.

“Part of being a diverse and inclusive university is accepting and accommodating those from different backgrounds than the traditional demographic of students on campus,” said Gail Lordi DRC’24, a nontraditional aged Douglass student studying ITI and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies.

2022 Project SUPER students and poster

On October 14, 2022, STEM research students, Rutgers faculty, Douglass staff, and distinguished guests gathered to share in an evening of knowledge, new ideas, and celebration of Douglass students in STEM. The annual Project SUPER Undergraduate Research Symposium and this year’s STEM Lecture were held in-person for the first time since the start of the pandemic.

“The symposium made my research experience notable,” said Isha D. Patel DRC'24, a cell biology and neuroscience major and Project SUPER student. “I felt confident in my work and that I was able to educate others of the purpose my research serves for the greater community. The symposium helped to bring together professionals of various fields to empower growing women like us to learn from each other.” Click here to read more!
