Educating Residents About Social Equity platED is a new diversity initiative within the Office of Residential Living at Georgetown University.
Washington D.C., DC
When it was first conceived, the ERASE organization was named ROCC, which stood for Residents of Color Council. ROCC was dedicated to meeting the needs of residential Georgetown University students of color be serving as a resource for students of color who had grievances, questions, and/or concerns about their residential experience. In conjunction with Resident Assistants, Residents, the Office of Residence Life, Student of Color Alliance (SOCA), and InterHall as well as campus, local, and national organizations, ROCC was committed to ensuring that students of color at Georgetown University had their interests and values respected and represented in the residential community. As time passed, the scope of the organization began to broaden to all traditionally underrepresented student groups and their experience as a residential student. The name was changed in the spring of 2009, as the participants of the group felt the name ROCC no longer reflected the purpose of the organization. The group was changed to ERASE, as membership expanded beyond RAs, and the mission expanded to educate about all forms of social inequality.
