Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has a firm commitment to global engagement. The faculty, students, and staff members continually develop new ideas for extending the university’s global reach. Through initiatives and collaborative projects that are frequently cross-cutting and interdisciplinary in nature, the Rutgers community works across departments and schools and engages with the surrounding world.
The Global Initiatives section demonstrates university-wide initiatives and individual school's efforts that help involve Rutgers students and faculty in the global community, regardless of their ability to travel. The section profiles a number of approaches to creating community-based activities and learning opportunities around topics of pressing global concern; expansion of global experiences for Rutgers undergraduate students; the development of comprehensive strategic partnerships with universities and international organizations such as the United Nations; and it highlights individual faculty and schools’ scholarly and research initiatives around the world.
