Overview

Rutgers is the flagship of New Jersey?s public higher education with major northern, central and southern campuses and offices in all counties. Vibrant and diverse with 55,000 students, 9,000 faculty and staff, Rutgers has 28 undergraduate, graduate, professional schools and 200 research centers. 175 academic departments offer 270 bachelor?s, master?s, doctoral and professional programs. Founded in 1766, Rutgers is among the nation's oldest institutions of higher learning. Yet Rutgers is the youngest of America?s major public research universities, designated New Jersey?s state university in 1945 and 1956. Since then Rutgers advanced to recognition with the top research universities in North America, in 1989 being asked to join the prestigious Association of American Universities. Today Rutgers thrives as a cohesive academic community, building synergies across disciplines and campuses, equally committed to excellence in teaching, scholarship and service. Driving Rutgers as a premier research university is the continuous, vigorous creation of intellectual capital?discoveries and insights that advance knowledge and improve the human condition.

Mission Statement

As the sole comprehensive public research university in the state?s system of higher education, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has the threefold mission of: ? providing for the instructional needs of New Jersey?s citizens through its undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education programs; ? conducting the cutting-edge research that contributes to the medical, environmental, social and cultural well-being of the state, as well as aiding the economy and the state?s businesses and industries; and ? performing public service in support of the needs of the citizens of the state and its local, county, and state governments. Each component of the university?s mission reinforces and supports the other two. For example, research creates the new knowledge so necessary to support quality instruction and innovative public service. The mission of the university is accomplished through its three regional campuses (New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden) and the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, which complement and support each other, permitting the most effective use of state resources.
