Students that participate in Thrive Community will have access to activities, sessions, and identity-building experiences that will allow them to discover who they are and the value their ethnic background adds to the UR community. The program will also allow students from different racial and/or cultural communities to connect with each other. Students participating in this year-long program will gain a network of peers that they feel comfortable with continuing to build a relationship of understanding and support.  

Please Note: Prior participation in Thrive Orientation is NOT required.


Cultural Kickbacks

Cultural kickbacks happen in the Multicultural Student Space once a month and is coordinated by student employees of the Student Center for Equity and Inclusion. Each kickback has food that highlights a certain culture within the Multicultural community as well as great music. Cultural kickbacks are open to all students that are open to learning from and meeting different people than themselves.
