This is an exciting time for the university, with substantial developments at every turn.
Each of these milestones is, on its own, cause for celebration.
Together, they form a Rutgers of unprecedented size, excellence, capacity, and reach.

Make A Gift

Major expansion in the health sciences: The creation of Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, which includes most of the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, has given Rutgers one of America’s largest, most comprehensive university-based centers for studying and improving human health and health care.
Big move: In July 2014, Rutgers joined the Big Ten, a conference known for its academic and athletic prowess. The move brings a new national visibility and membership in the elite Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), an academic consortium that fosters collaborations with world-class research institutions.

A university with a plan: Rutgers is moving forward with its first strategic plan in nearly two decades. The plan defines a bold yet attainable vision for the university and identifies the steps needed to realize it.
Reinvented campuses: This is the most comprehensive capital construction period since the 1960s, with one or more major projects on every campus. Voter passage of the Building Our Future Bond Act in November 2012 and many generous private donations have made these projects possible.

Time-honored institution: The year 2016 marks the 250th anniversary of Rutgers’ founding, and preparations for the festivities are already under way. The university’s long history is one of its most extraordinary characteristics; Rutgers is one of only nine colonial colleges established before the American Revolution.
Billion-dollar idea: Rutgers completed its first $1 billion fundraising campaign. This represents a new era in private support for the university. Rutgers’ last campaign, completed in 2004, raised $615 million.

We can’t do this alone. We need your support to keep the momentum going.
Help us give our students and faculty what they need to
succeed and to compete with our new peers.
