The Margery Somers Foster Center of Rutgers University Libraries strives to enable
Rutgers students to build their leadership skills. Through the Foster Center's creative
programs, students have the opportunity to engage in critical analysis and innovative
research that enhances their academic experience. The programs also explore
concepts for better understanding into alternative accounts of race, gender and
sexuality, and power dynamics. Additionally, the Foster Center cultivates students'
multimedia skills by utilizing the library resources, in particular the media resources at
the Media Center and the capabilities of the Sharon Fordham Multimedia Laboratory,
and exploring the dimensions of new media, and media technologies and cultures, as
they interact with gender.
Since the fall of 2010, the Foster Center is offering two pilot workshops to Rutgers
undergraduate students, one in multimedia skills, and one in interview practices. The
Center will also sponsor two Undergraduate Multimedia Awards. The center's past
projects are available here.
