Rider’s Employee Affinity Groups are designed to help faculty and staff with shared interests or identities to come together for open and respectful dialogue. The groups will develop a supportive learning space related to those shared interests, including support for groups that have been challenged historically and remain challenged today.
Each group works to assist employees who want to enhance self-knowledge, develop an understanding of issues, develop as leaders in a diverse environment and develop skills to serve as allies to support each other and promote diversity, equity and inclusion on Rider’s campus and in the community.
Rider University’s current affinity groups:
- African American men
- Asian American Alliance
- Black and Latin Alliance
- Working parents
- Employees with disabilities
- First-generation college graduates
