Throughout the years, RAAA, Inc. continues to have an ever increasing presence on campus as a means to enhance relationships with both the student body and the University.
RAAA, Inc. strives to foster and enhance unity amongst Alumni, students, faculty and staff of African ancestry via programming and active participation in the lives of current Rutgers students.
