Through our commitment to students, faculty, and the community we serve, Rutgers–Camden keeps our eyes on the future as we advance the mission of our campus.

Rutgers–Camden has identified four goals to advance the campus and provide a foundation for future growth.

  1. Grow enrollment. Recruitment of new students, and retention of those enrolled at Rutgers–Camden, is at the top of the campus’ goals for this year. The Rutgers–Camden Offices of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs, in collaboration with the faculty, administration, and staff, are working diligently to expand campus enrollments.
  2. Enhance campus physical environment. An improved physical environment is already in progress at Rutgers–Camden. Recently, the campus celebrated the groundbreaking for a state-of-the-art Nursing and Science Building. Recent completed projects include significant renovations to the Athletic and Fitness Center and opening new graduate housing at 330 Cooper, as well as a new Law School building and restored existing facility.
  3. Advance Rutgers–Camden’s reputation. The campus will strive to better tell the Rutgers–Camden story to our constituents. A new branding and marketing campaign has been launched by Rutgers University, and improvements to web and social media resources are ongoing.
  4. Support the goals of the academic units. As is appropriate for a top public research institution, Rutgers–Camden will represent the aspirations of our schools and colleges to the university and external constituencies by working closely with the deans and their faculties.

Projects on the Horizon
