Rensselaer Runs United Virtual 5K is right around the corner! And the great news is, you can choose when and where you want to run/walk/bike, any time between Oct. 15 to Oct. 17.  Don’t forget to use the hashtag #RensselaerRunsUnited and tag us @rpi and @UnitedWay_GCR. 

The theme for this year’s campaign is From the Community, For the Community!  We can do our part by registering for the virtual 5k!  All donations will go directly to the United Way of the Greater Capital Region…United to fight for health, education and financial stability for every person in the Greater Capital Region!  

Join us in the mission to build a stronger more resilient Capital Region.

Because we are going virtual, again this year, anyone can participate — alumni, students, friends, and family!  Please help us spread the word!

Families of Color Gathering

Building on our commitment to creating a campus of inclusive excellence, we feel it is important to recognize the contributions the families of our Black, Latinx and Native American students have made to lift up these communities and transform the landscape of higher education in general, and in particular, Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. We understand how important it is that we build a community amongst these groups given their underrepresentation in higher education institutes. This effort is one among many others that we are committed to hosting in the years to come.

Please consider joining us and bringing your parents, siblings, extended family, and anybody who has contributed to your success thus far so that they may be honored and appreciated for their work. If there is a member of the faculty or staff at Rensselaer who has especially made a difference during your time here, please ask them to join us so that your loved ones can meet them. Recording Available Here
