The New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Higher Education Restructuring Act, enacted in August 2012, offers new opportunities for the significant development and growth of Rutgers–Camden’s research, teaching, and service missions.

Rutgers–Camden is at a unique juncture in the history of our campus.  The strategic planning process continues provide a crucial opportunity for us to think, talk, and plan together to ensure that we build our campus in a way that is consistent with who we are and what we wish to become.  Such activity is consistent with the recently completed University-wide strategic plan initiated by President Robert Barchi and approved by the Rutgers Board of Governors.

The campus community will develop a concise, focused plan that sets priorities for Rutgers–Camden and creates a clear foundation for communicating our goals and strategies both within and beyond Rutgers. The key elements of the process include a series of discussions open to – and representative of – every member of our community:  faculty, students, staff, alumni, regional communities and leaders, and supporters and friends of our campus.

The early stages of this planning process were facilitated by Dr. Terrence MacTaggart, who formerly served as chancellor of both the University of Maine System and the Minnesota State University System.  A steering committee, co-chaired by Dr. Drew Humphries (professor, CFAS-sociology), remains engaged.

Chancellor Phoebe A. Haddon has signaled her commitment to embracing a strategic plan that evolves to meet opportunities while striving to achieve a collective campus vision.
