Better lives and brighter futures. We all want the same things for the community we live in. That’s why Rutgers–Camden is partnering with our neighbors—throughout the City of Camden and across the region—in an intense commitment to civic engagement. Through efforts large and small, Rutgers–Camden is deepening its presence in the community, sharing our many resources to achieve common goals.

Change may be immediate (a spruced-up street) or long term (economic growth or educational excellence), but the benefits are mutual. The community advances its pursuit of positive change, while the university connects its knowledge to the world. Our students develop as future professionals and responsible citizens, while our faculty see their innovations at work—and discover new challenges to meet.

Working together, we are making great progress—lives enhanced, neighborhoods strengthened, opportunity extended—toward our shared tomorrows.
