Roger Pledge Day

All Day University Wide

Roger Pledge Day will be a day dedicated to advancing our communal understanding of racial equity.

RWU’s Racism Stops With Me Campaign launched nearly one year ago, but there’s still work to be done. Each one of us must commit to learning what we each can do – individually and as a community – to make Roger Williams University an antiracist institution.

RWU Faculty, Staff, Students, Alumni, Parents and Friends are encouraged to participate.

Sign The Roger Pledge 

Join individuals and teams across RWU who are committing to calling out racism and bias, and making the University a place where every member of our community feels a sense of belonging and can thrive at Roger.

Consider adding this line to your email signature: “I signed the Roger Pledge”.
