Students of Color

RCC welcomes people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds. We want to provide a place of:

  • Confirmation: You are valuable no matter your skin color, hair texture, facial features, heritage, cultural values and practices, country of origin, or language used.
  • Sanctuary: From overt and covert societal messages and behaviors that suggest you are somehow inferior or do not deserve to be here.
  • Empowerment: To help you create your own sense of self that is shaped by your values and beliefs, rather than those placed upon you by others; to make choices about when you decide to take action or step back; to help you use your values, whatever they may be, to guide your life and find fulfillment.

While RCC embraces and values you, we recognize that as a person of color you often come in contact with individuals, institutions, and systems that leave you feeling mistreated, demoralized, rejected, or judged. We welcome you to talk about these experiences.

Examples of concerns we commonly help students of color with include:

  • Attending a predominately white institution
  • Academic challenges
  • First generation concerns
  • Relationship issues
  • Work/school/family balance
  • Micro-aggressions
  • Family concerns
  • Adjusting to college
  • Political climate
