RCAAS Hosts 2nd Annual Neurodiversity Summit

June 2023

RUNDTFRutgers is home to many neurodiverse students, staff, and faculty; however, their perspectives and needs aren't always addressed. The RU Neurodiversity Taskforce is determined to change that.


Recently, over 100 #RU faculty, staff, administrators, students, and friends attended the 2nd Annual Neurodiversity Summit, hosted by the Rutgers Center for Adult Autism Services (RCAAS)The impactful event celebrated and empowered RU’s neurodiverse community. It included updates on the Taskforce’s ongoing work, a dance showcase, candid and educational presentations and panel discussions, and more.

The highlight was an exciting announcement from RU-NB Chancellor-Provost, Dr. Francine Conway. Demonstrating its commitment to serve the underserved, her office is dedicating substantial additional funding to support the neurodiverse community!       

“I want our neurodiverse students to know that their university cares about their well-being. It is a failure if all students do not feel welcomed, valued, and supported,” said Conway.

The RCAAS-College Support Program (CSP) will particularly benefit from this investment. Stay tuned for more details!
