CERRU runs two competitive student fellowships, which are the backbone of the organization. Through these two fellowships, we mentor and train a next generation of leaders who will be operating in an increasingly multicultural world.

Students in our Undoing Bias (formerly Dialogue) Fellowship learn to confront the challenges of a diverse community by entering into a yearlong program in which they learn how to undo their own bias and have difficult conversations in order to transform conflict.

Social Organizing (formerly Social Change) Fellows are small groups of students who are passionate about a specific social challenge, and want to do something about it. The social change program supports students trying to create positive change in their communities.

CERRU Spotlight

Innovation Exchange

Each year, CERRU brings together innovators in various fields to participate in a campus and community wide Innovation Exchange. Please join us for our fifth annual Innovation Exchange on Wednesday, November 2nd at 4:45pm in the Patio Room on the Queens College Campus.

Lunchtime 2.0

Lunchtime 2.0 is an initiative aimed at redefining the way we think of college cafeterias. Campuses across the US are becoming more diverse; however, not enough is being done to provide a mechanism for diverse students to engage and listen to each other.
