Artists Mentoring Against Racism, Drugs and Violence (AMARD&V): Healing through the Arts Summer Program

The AMARD&V Summer Program helps central New Jersey at–risk youth between the ages of 10 and 16 to acquire knowledge, skills and understanding about the performing and visual arts through an interdisciplinary curriculum that emphasizes hands–on learning and art making, mentored by professional teaching artists in a community–based setting. The goal is to empower young people to transform their lives, their attitudes about themselves, and their community, as well as develop skills that equip them for a successful education and a healthy future.

AMARD&V is a partnership between Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Community Health Promotion Program, Rutgers University Latino Center for Arts and Culture, PRAB, and Suydam Street Reformed Church in New Brunswick.

Latino and Caribbean Studies

Puerto Rican Studies was established at Rutgers University in the fall of 1970, as a result of demands by 16 Livingston Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) students in the summer of 1969. In 2006 the department became the Department of Latino & Hispanic Caribbean Studies to better reflect the department’s current course offerings, mission, student body, and faculty scholarship.

The department seeks to promote hemispheric and transnational approaches that more adequately consider the ways in which both U.S. Latino and Caribbean populations are transformed by globalization, while maintaining deeply localized historical legacies. As such, courses are organized around five themes Historical and Political Studies; Migration, Society and Community; Race, Ethnicity and Identity; Cultural Studies and Cultural Production; Gender and Sexuality studies. Both an undergraduate major and minor options are offered.
