About this Guide

This guide provides information on how you can get involved in activism at Rutgers. Rutgers has a rich history of activism, especially on the Douglass, College Avenue, and Livingston Campuses.

Activists work in a variety of areas including politics, environment, and women's and gender Issues. While there is some information about community service, these pages focus on activism - making change. These resources should be helpful in your quest to start or find an activist group on campus or in the area, do research on activism in your area of interest and help make a difference in the world.
