Community Advocates

The Community Advocates are grounded in civility and respect for human beings. When students become Community Advocates, they declare their opposition to discrimination based on race, sex, religion, physical ability, or sexual orientation and to unjust discrimination of all kinds. They pledge to do all within their power to prevent harassment of any person or group of people and support any individual or group which seeks to heal wounds inflicted by unjust discrimination. They strive to create at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute an environment in which all people may find acceptance and the freedom to grow and learn.

Who are the Community Advocates? The Community Advocates are rising sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate student leaders who have the shared goal to prepare Rensselaer students for global citizenship by promoting an understanding and appreciation for diversity and inclusivity.
