R-Camden Diversity Project
The 11orMore™Project was started by Dr. Cameron T. Whitley in 2018 as an initiative to promote LGBTQIA+ students, faculty, and staff support and acceptance at schools across the country. Rutgers University-Camden is a participating sponsor of this project. The GLSEN 2015 National School Climate Survey suggests that most LGBTQ+ students have experienced harassment and discrimination in their high schools prior to coming to college. In fact, about 85% report being verbally harassed and over 50% report hearing homophobic and negative gender expression remarks by high school staff. The hope is that this project will showcase members from all across the campus community helping students to feel valued and supported in their identities within the campus community.
