Here at Rutgers – New Brunswick, there is a residential community available for students who are interested in exploring issues/ideas related to the black diaspora, identity, history and cultural manifestations. It is:
Paul Robeson Living Learning Community, College Avenue Campus
The Paul Robeson Living-Learning Community was established in 1976 and is a symbol of acknowledgment of the late Paul Robeson, a celebrated African-American activist, scholar, artist, athlete, and Rutgers graduate. This community places special emphasis on aiding first-year students as they make the transition from high school to college. It encourages community interaction and involvement, scholarship, as well as self-growth. Community members stress cultural enrichment and awareness among themselves, other members of the residence hall and the Rutgers community. They work collaboratively with staff and faculty mentors towards academic achievement and excellence. The community strives to engender curiosity, interest and understanding of the history and origins of the African Diaspora and the relevance and importance of that understanding in day to day life.
