Georgetown University: Plated Educating Residents About Social Equity platED is a new diversity initiative within the Office of Residential Living at Georgetown University.

platED is dedicated to maintaining and building an inclusive environment for the residential community through discussions surrounding issues of diversity, identity and social justice within their residence halls and spaces. Up to 8 participants have the opportunity to engage in these conversations with one the D7 topics or a current over a meal in one of our residential spaces on campus with a faculty or staff member. You can apply for a platED event with at least two weeks in advance notice of the proposed platED event. By filling out this application you will be serving as the main contact to work with your RA to locate space, pick up food once it is delivered, coordinate with faculty/staff to find building location, return itemized receipt to Jillian Sitjar's mailbox in Harbin 100, and fill out the assessment form following the event. Sign up for platED here: http://tinyurl.com/hlvqu4z

Mission: The purpose of ERASE is to create a welcoming and inclusive environment within the residence halls and across campus. ERASE provides support and services that promote awareness and social equity through multiple dimensions of diversity through dialogue, education, and programs.

General information

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.
