Meet Rutgers-Newark

Everyday we ask ourselves: What does the world need from us right now? As an anchor institution in Newark, we collaborate broadly through partnerships that power innovation. Our commitment to social justice compels us to do work that matters in our predominantly Black and Brown city and cities like it everywhere.
