Other Underrepresented Groups

The Rutgers Department of Philosophy strives to maintain a supportive environment for graduate students belonging to other underrepresented groups, including LGBT graduate students, graduate students of racial and ethnic minorities, and disabled graduate students.  Though some of the challenges faced by members of these groups are the same as those faced by women in philosophy, many are not.  In recognition of the need to address the situation of each underrepresented group individually, the Department has collected a number of resources for LGBT, minority, and disabled students below.

Resources for LGBT Graduate Students:

Resources for Graduate Students of Racial and Ethnic Minorities:

Resources for Graduate Students with Disabilities:
