Expressions of Me

The Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Office of Faculty and Staff Affairs has been awarded a grant to create a multicultural event series, “Expressions of Me” to highlight and celebrate different groups and cultures represented in the faculty and staff at Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences. The goal of this program is to increase the sense of community at Rutgers RWJMS and RBHS through cultural fairs filled with varying artwork that represents the region, culture or personality, spoken word, food tasting of regional cuisine, question and answer sessions, and discussions with a focus on enhancing and understanding diverse groups. 

Expressions of Me will involve six sessions held on the New Brunswick campus.  Each session will focus on one region of the world and allow the different groups represented to share aspects and experiences of their culture.

January 31, 2023

We are looking forward to partnering with you as we learn more about each other.
