Rutgers University–Camden Driving Change is led by a team of faculty, staff, and students whom all share a common goal: we are committed to drive genuine and lasting cultural change on our campus so that STEM undergraduate students from all backgrounds, particularly those who belong to historically excluded groups, will excel and graduate from college, will be well prepared to pursue advanced degrees, and will eventually assume leadership roles.

As members of the Rutgers–Camden community who interact with our students on a day-to-day basis, we feel compelled to take a deeper look into the barriers of success for underrepresented groups in STEM fields and seek out long-term ways to address these problems. While we are proud of the long-standing commitment Rutgers–Camden has made to diversity and inclusion, we feel that there is always room for growth, and growth must start with self-inspection, reflection, and an open mind.
