About New Jersey
Rutgers University serves one of the most densely populated, highly educated, rapidly growing, economically dynamic, ethnically diverse, and globally connected states in the United States. More than ten percent of New Jersey’s citizens have postgraduate degrees, and one in three are foreign-born or have a foreign-born parent. As the flagship university of this extraordinary state, Rutgers faces marvelous challenges: how to produce the research essential to future breakthroughs, how to prepare the graduates who will contribute to the state and the world, how to be the new “golden door? for this next generation of Americans, how to capitalize on religious, artistic, linguistic, culinary, and cultural diversity, and how to educate all students in the democratic traditions of this country.

Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey

Chartered in 1766, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, is the eighth-oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. It has a unique history: from its inception as a colonial liberal arts college, Rutgers grew to become the land-grant college of New Jersey in 1864, and to assume full university status in 1924. Legislative acts of 1945 and 1956 designated it the State University of New Jersey.

Today, Rutgers is one of the leading public research universities in the nation. It comprises twenty-nine degree-granting divisions: thirteen undergraduate colleges, eleven graduate schools, and five schools offering both undergraduate and graduate degrees. In keeping with its mission to provide instruction, research opportunities, and public service for all citizens of New Jersey, Rutgers’ schools and divisions are located throughout the state: five divisions are in Camden, seven in Newark, sixteen in New Brunswick/Piscataway, and one in both New Brunswick/Piscataway and Newark. The Graduate School of Education is located on the New Brunswick/Piscataway campus.

Rutgers currently enrolls 38,000 undergraduates and 13,000 graduate students across its three campuses, in more than 100 bachelor’s, 100 master’s, and 80 doctoral and professional degree programs. The University continues to grow and expand, not only in the quality of its student body, but also in the variety and depth of its educational and research programs, the quality and range of its facilities, and the amount of its federal and state research support. In 2003, federal support for Rutgers’ research and training programs grew by 6%, to over $250 million; the amount of state support was $524 million. In addition to the excellent teaching, research, and public service offered on Rutgers campuses, one of the University’s great strengths is the diversity of its student body. Rutgers’ diversity not only reflects the unique character of the State of New Jersey, but it also creates a distinctive community that prepares students exceptionally well for leadership in our multicultural and multiethnic nation.
