Overview

Rutgers is the flagship of New Jersey’s public higher education with major northern, central and southern campuses and offices in all counties.  Vibrant and diverse with 65,000 students, 24,000 faculty and staff, Rutgers has 34 undergraduate, graduate, professional schools and 200 research centers.  175 academic departments offer over 270 bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral and professional programs. Founded in 1766, Rutgers is among the nation's oldest institutions of higher learning.  Yet Rutgers is the youngest of America’s major public research universities, designated New Jersey’s state university in 1945 and 1956.  Since then Rutgers advanced to recognition with the top research universities in North America, in 1989 being asked to join the prestigious Association of American Universities.  On July 1, 2013, the New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act went into effect, integrating Rutgers with most units of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ).  The integration of the legacy elements of UMDNJ into Rutgers has created a fourth unit, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences (RBHS), which consists of a number of schools and units located on various sites but closely aligned with the campus in New Brunswick.
