Rutgers University-Newark is the direct descendant of a small collection of Newark colleges, established in the early 1900s, that ultimately merged into the University of Newark. It was the University of Newark that merged with Rutgers in 1946 to create Rutgers University-Newark. Regardless of its structure or name, RU-N has been led by individuals who envisioned New Jersey as a hub for accessible higher education programs that would elevate the state economically, socially and culturally.
