Montclair State: One CommUNITY

This event has been planned in collaboration with your Student Government Association. Given the current climate surrounding social justice, we wanted to start the year off by promoting and discussing advocacy and coming together in UNITY. Hear from members of our faculty, staff and student organizations as we display our diversity and UNITY. This is an event you won’t want to miss… oh and Rocky will be in attendance!

Make sure you show your Red Hawk Pride and wear RED!

Based on the in-person gather guidelines, capacity for this event is limited, so claim your ticket early. Masks will be required by all attendees and social distancing will be enforced.
