    About Rutgers University-Camden

    University Mission and Goals As the sole comprehensive public research university in the New Jersey system of higher education and the state's land-grant institution, Rutgers University has the mission of instruction, research, and service. Among the principles the university recognizes in carrying out this threefold mission are the following: • Rutgers has the prime responsibility in the state to conduct fundamental and applied research, to train scholars, researchers, and professionals, and to make knowledge available to students, scholars, and the general public. • Rutgers should maintain its traditional strength in arts and sciences, while at the same time developing such new professional and career-oriented programs as are warranted by public interest, social need, and employment opportunities. • Rutgers will continually seek to make its educational programs accessible to an appropriately broad student body. • Rutgers is committed to extending its resources and knowledge to a variety of publics, and bringing special expertise and competence to bear on the solution of public problems. Consistent with this mission, the Board of Governors in 1980, following a review of the university's achievements and capabilities as well as New Jersey's needs, adopted a statement of goals that set the bold aspiration of enhancing Rutgers' national and international standing and establishing the university as a major center of higher education. By pursuing these goals in the 1980's the university has made major strides towards the attainment of a new level of national distinction. These goals shall continue to guide the development of the university in the decade ahead as Rutgers achieves even greater eminence and contributes even more fully to New Jersey's well being in the tradition of this nation's great land-grant universities. As the goals state, Rutgers will: • Continue development of the university as a national and international resource by: improvements in the quality of its instruction, research and public service; increased emphasis on the contributions of its scholars; and increased emphasis on an atmosphere that stimulates learning, encourages creativity, rewards service, and contributes to the personal and professional growth of all the members of the Rutgers community. • Increase the number of areas of graduate education, research, and scholarship of national and international renown. • Improve the already high quality of the undergraduate experience in the liberal arts, seeking both to preserve the diversity of its programs and to develop students who will provide future leadership for the state, the nation and the world. • Develop and improve programs to serve society's needs for broadly educated, humane, competent professionals.
