CRCDS commits to the Rochester community through the Level Up Champions initiative

Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School (CRCDS) is a proud partner in Rochester’s Level Up Champions initiative. A Level Up Champion is an employer that has taken the first step toward wage equity by instituting a $15 per hour or higher starting wage within their organization.

Founded by the RMAPI, the Level Up Champion recognition program is both a celebration of progress and an urgent call to action. The Level Up Champions recognition badge celebrates organizations who have made the decision to increase their starting wage, showing that doing the right thing is part of their company’s DNA. The badge also signifies to current employees, potential employees and the general public that Level Up Champions believe that increasing wages are essential to promoting upward mobility and their organization is committed to being a part of the wider movement to lift our entire community.

More information about the Level Up Champions can be found at and a video describing the initiative can be found here
