Meet the Staff

Zaneta Rago-Craft, Ed.D., is the inaugural director of the Intercultural Center and began her tenure at Monmouth in the summer of 2019. Previously, Dr. Rago-Craft served as the director for the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. Originally from Long Branch, New Jersey, Dr. Rago-Craft graduated in 2010 from the Ramapo College of New Jersey with a bachelor’s degree in history and women and gender studies and a master’s degree from New York University in higher education and student affairs administration in 2012. She also holds an Ed.D. in education, culture, and society from Rutgers University.

Dr. Rago-Craft has worked in intercultural campus support for the last 10 years, including previous roles with the New York University LGBTQ Student Center, the Center for Multicultural Education and Programs at NYU, and Ramapo College’s Educational Opportunity Fund program and Women’s Center. She has a passion for infusing social justice education into her student affairs work with a particular interest in facilitating conversations around the intersectionality of multiple identities and oppression, art as activism, feminism, anti-racism, mentoring, LGBTQIA+ representations in the media, and multiracial experiences in a “check one box” world.
