     With a 40-year history at NJCU, the Speicher-Rubin Women's Center for Equity and Diversity remains committed to creating an inclusive community where everyone respects and values diverse cultures, experiences and perspectives.   

    Our Vision  
    The Speicher-Rubin Women's Center for Equity and Diversity will create a University community where everyone understands and values diverse cultures, experiences, and perspectives. In fulfilling this goal, the Center staff will develop programs and services that serve the intellectual, social, personal, and cultural needs of all students while paying particular attention to women, as well as under-represented and marginalized groups.  
    Our Mission 
    The mission of the Speicher-Rubin Women's Center for Equity and Diversity at New Jersey City University and within the community at a large is to advocate, educate, and provide support and referral services in order to address cultural diversity and to achieve equity for women as well as under-represented students with respect to ability, race, color, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or religion.  
    In this initial effort to develop a more institutionally integrated and more specific approach toward advancing the broad connect of equity and diversity, it will be important to identify goals and objectives that address these three areas:  
    • Support of institutional leadership 
    • The extent to which the issues of equity and diversity are incorporated into both the curricular programs, as well as co-curricular activities 
    • The degree to which the events, messages, symbols, values, etc. of the campus make it a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, faculty, and staff members of the broader community  
    • To empower students to create a campus culture that values women and under-represented students and their diverse identities and experiences 
    • To provide, coordinate, and participate in comprehensive sexual violence rich reduction programs 
    • To assess the campus culture for women and under-represented students and advocate for a climate that eliminates barriers, prejudice, and bigotry, and creates a hospitable climate for all women and under-represented students 
    • To sponsor speakers, performers, events, and activities that address the interest and concerns of women and under-represented students
