Living & Learning Together
Academic programs within Douglass Residential College range from individual courses (for academic credit) to co-curricular programs that enhance class-based learning. Our mission course, “Issues in Women’s Leadership” (01:988:130), is a 3-credit course taken by all Douglass students and open to non-Douglass students at Rutgers.
Students examine challenges and opportunities confronting women and are encouraged to become active and engaged learners and to think critically about their own goals in education.
