Restorative Justice & Equity Resources

Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School is committed to building a more inclusive and supportive community. 

In order to further our goal, next steps will include:

  1. increasing awareness and educating faculty and staff through workshops/trainings regarding microaggressions, implicit bias, trauma-informed care, upstander/bystander, and crisis management

  2. conducting training for faculty facilitators to assist with addressing complex topics in diversity, equity and inclusion 

  3. conducting open and more timely communication

  4. supporting transparency

  5. continuing to provide student support services for wellness

  6. making certain that the confidential process of how to report unprofessional behavior is clear to the students

Unprofessional behavior towards students, faculty and staff will not be tolerated and when unprofessional behavior is reported there will not be repercussions.
