Defend Rutgers: Why RU-Camden Matters to Rutgers University

Big Rutgers Board of Trustees Meeting tonight at 7pm at the College Avenue Student Center on the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers. The BOT will be dining across the street at Brower Commons immediately before the meeting.

So here is the third and installment of the three video series Defend Rutgers: Communicating our Identity 101. This one on why Rutgers-Camden matters to Rutgers.

In addition to the issues laid out in the video, what happens to other Rutgers facilities and the Rutgers cooperative extension programs in South Jersey?

What happens to the Rutgers Food Innovation Center in Bridgeton?

The Rutgers EcoComplex in Bordentown?

The Pinelands Field Station?

The Rutgers Marine Science Field Station in Tuckerton?

Rutgers Marine Sciences program is ranked fourth best in the world.  Will Rutgers have to give up it’s Marine Science program and/or facilities as part of the merger?

    are part of the land grant university.

    Rutgers is New Jersey’s Land Grant University, since the incorporation of the NJ Agricultural Experiment station.

    Cornell is New York’s; Purdue is Indiana’s.

    They were established by Act of Congress, and have to serve the entire state.

    There are county extension offices.  The stations / centers listed above are not all affiliated with extension.  Note the description of the Pinelands Field Station:

    The Pinelands Field Station acts as a center for the activities of members of the Division of Pinelands Research, which is a loose assemblage of Rutgers personnel who have a research interest in the New Jersey Pinelands.

    College classes relating to the Station are offered in summer at Camden.
