The RBS Campaign – Our Rutgers, Our Future

Revolutionary for 250 years

For 250 years, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey has been a national leader in higher education, research, and service. Our Rutgers, Our Future, a $1 billion campaign, was launched to broaden and enhance the myriad ways the university serves students, the state, and the world. A successful campaign will ensure Rutgers' place among the world's top institutions. This vision for the university will transform the very fiber of learning at Rutgers and will prepare students to meet the needs of the 21st century.

As a part of this historic campaign, Rutgers Business School has established and surpassed its $50 million campaign goal for school priorities.

The campaign seeks support for four key funding areas:

OUR FACULTY & research

Rutgers' remarkable faculty inspire and engage our students, as well as conduct groundbreaking research. But just over 1 percent of the university's faculty hold endowed chairs; Rutgers' peer institutions boast far more endowed professorships.  An endowed chair supports a scholar's work and helps attract more research funding, outstanding junior faculty, and top-notch students. Private funding is also critical for moving research forward.

Rutgers Business School has received generous support from alumni, corporate partnerships, and other partners in establishing 10 endowed faculty chairs. Learn more about these RBS Professorships and the faculty who hold them.

 

OUR CAMPUSES & facilities

Rutgers Business School is making significant investments on both the Newark and New Brunswick campuses.  RBS has built world-class facilities for teaching, research, and entrepreneurial endeavors. New buildings have opened at 1 Washington Park in Newark and 100 Rock on the Livingston Campus creating two high-tech buildings to serve students, faculty and staff.

OUR STUDENTS & learning

Few universities can match Rutgers' accessibility to talented students at every income level. Funding for scholarships and fellowships has never been more important in attracting the best students. Competition for top business students is more intense than ever.  In addition, Rutgers Business School is committed to providing unparalleled opportunities for students inside and outside the classroom.  Student programming such as MBA Team Consulting, CEO Lecture Series, RBS student clubs, Women’s Business Leadership Initiative, and mentoring provide students with invaluable experience outside the classroom.

 

OUR UNIVERSITY & community programs

The campaign seeks to enrich life for the Rutgers community and beyond. Funding in this area will impact the full spectrum of Rutgers Business School programs, from student services to. It will also support the university's mission of outreach as it addresses such problems as economic development, supporting entrepreneurial endeavors,  and assisting businesses across the region.

 

Our Rutgers, Our Future depends on the entire Rutgers community to embrace this vision and support it with their gifts. Support that grows the university's endowment as well as unrestricted gifts that allow the university to meet changing needs are both essential to the campaign's success. The campaign invites the university's alumni, friends, and partners in industry to be leaders in this historic effort to position Rutgers as one of the nation's very best public research universities.
