Alumni Input in the Rutgers Strategic Plan
Rutgers is embarking on a strategic planning process to define the future of the university for the next 10 or more years. President Barchi launched the process last December, and we hope to have a finalized university-wide plan by the end of 2013.
The Impact Rutgers Volunteers Make
The RUAA's Rutgers Alumni Day of Service expands to include Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. Featured are stories about how Michelle Moscato CC’98 volunteered in Sea Bright; the University College–Rutgers New Brunswick Alumni Association's service to New Brunswick, Union Beach, and Atlantic City; Hank Ebert CC’79, who persevered in Idaho; and the Rutgers Alumni Association and Livingston Alumni Association's coat drive.
The Integration of Rutgers and UMDNJ
On November 19, the Rutgers Boards of Governors and Trustees, voted unanimously to approve the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act, which will take effect July 1, 2013. In this letter to alumni, President Robert L. Barchi writes about what this change means for Rutgers and about its impact on alumni.
The Benefits of Networking are Exponential
David Felder RC’81 offers a testimonial about the Alumni-Student Career Speed Networking Event, which will take place on December 5 at the Rutgers Student Center in New Brunswick. Alumni volunteers are needed to make this event a success.
Gov. Christie Signs Higher Ed Restructuring Legislation Positioning Rutgers as National Leader
Officials of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, welcomed Gov. Chris Christie and Senate President Stephen M. Sweeney today at an historic signing of the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act on Rutgers’ New Brunswick Campus. The legislation, which passed both houses of the New Jersey Legislature June 28 with strong bipartisan support, will help propel Rutgers into the top tier of national research universities and strengthen medical education across the state.
Thank You, Rutgers Alumni
Yesterday both the New Jersey Senate and Assembly passed the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act, which legislates that much of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) be absorbed by Rutgers. The final legislation also establishes more autonomy for the Rutgers-Camden campus without ceding control of it to Rowan University or another governing board. These changes would go into effect on July 1, 2013.
In this letter to all alumni, RUAA Board Chair Christine Tiritilli DC‘92 thanks you for making your voices heard and being strong advocates for Rutgers.
Important Week Ahead for Rutgers
RUAA Board Chair Christine Tiritilli DC'92 urges alumni to act now and express solidarity for Rutgers University as the New Jersey State Legislature is expected to take up the proposed higher education legislation next week. The Rutgers University Alumni Association Board of Directors, which represents our over 405,000 alumni, stands in solidarity with the Rutgers Board of Governors and Board of Trustees and has endorsed the shared principles for the Governance of Rutgers University and its campuses presented by both Rutgers Governing boards on June 6, 2012.
