As we navigate our current environment, you may be experiencing some uncertainty about what lies ahead. However, you can still make meaningful connections with Douglass. Staff mentors are available via email, video chat, and phone to help with career and academic needs, BOLD Action Plans, or if you just want someone to confide in as you adjust. If you have challenges that your mentor is not able to help with, or if you feel that you need extraordinary assistance, please reach out to Assistant Dean Leslie Danehy.

If you’re unsure of who to contact, please reach out to Rebecca Reynolds who can help point you in the right direction.

Douglass is open and operating. However, per the University's instructions, all Douglass events for Spring 2021 will take place remotely. Please know that we do not take the cancellation of our events lightly. However, we also understand the importance of supporting public health strategies to ensure the safety of our students and alumnae.

Please see the schedule for virtual programs here. Events will continue to be added.

You can still plan to take on Douglass leadership roles for next fall! Below are a list of open applications for Douglass programs:

  • For students: please email drccommunity@gmail.com
  • For alumnae: please email drcadvancement@echo.rutgers.edu

All of us in the Douglass community are thinking of each other and our loved ones as we face the challenges of the COVID-19 virus. Thank you to those who have reached out to express concern for our students as well as the many generous offers to help. By giving to The Douglass Difference Annual Fund you can help provide financial assistance to students in times of emergency. Rutgers University also has set up several campus-wide student emergency funds.
