The Office of Civic Engagement at Rutgers University–Camden strives to connect the resources of our campus with the needs and opportunities of communities here in our host city, throughout the state of New Jersey, and beyond.
Rutgers is open and operating. The university has moved to remote instruction for the remainder of the spring semester. Some services and facilities may not be operating or are operating on limited schedules.
Building Partnerships to Advance the Community
Working with students, faculty, and staff across all of the schools on our campus, we build partnerships that achieve community goals while advancing the teaching and research mission of the university.
Our work supports community development in areas such as early childhood and K–12 education, health, nutrition, economic vitality, financial independence, and environmental improvement. We are committed to advancing community objectives while developing the next generation of engaged citizens and leaders.
