President's Message

je12barchirobert20r1"Ensuring that our students are fully equipped to address the global challenges of our time is part of our university’s mission of teaching, research, and service. Rutgers continues to provide comprehensive international programs, establish strategic international partnerships, and provide quality services to the international members of our university community."

 

President Robert L. Barchi

Every day at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, faculty, staff, and students are working to gain knowledge, solve problems, and conduct research addressing global concerns. Faculty, staff, and students from our university work with colleagues around the world—engaging in collaborative research, establishing ties with international peer institutions, and developing international programs and curriculum. In addition, Rutgers welcomes thousands of international students and scholars to campus each year. This year, more than 5,000 international students will study at Rutgers, further emphasizing our global reach.

We are enabling our students to have international experiences in a variety of ways. Students can choose from more than 100 program options in 40 countries through Rutgers Study Abroad. They can attend one of the many events planned for 2013-2014 tied to the GAIA Centers’ Biennial Theme: Global Health! They can visit the United Nations to see a briefing or attend a conference through the university’s affiliation with the UN. This just skims the surface of opportunities available to Rutgers students to engage with our global society.

Rutgers has identified five focus countries for the university’s international engagement: China, Brazil, India, Indonesia, and Liberia. These countries offer significant areas for collaborative opportunities and research potential. Many of our faculty are already engaged with colleagues in these countries, conducting research to address issues of local, national, and global concern. Working across schools and departments, Rutgers is further establishing strong partnerships and programs in these five countries, as well as with many other institutions from countries around the world.

It’s an exciting time to be an internationally engaged student at Rutgers. Ensuring that our students are fully equipped to address the global challenges of our time is part of our university’s mission of teaching, research, and service. Rutgers continues to provide comprehensive international programs, establish strategic international partnerships, and provide quality services to the international members of our university community. In doing so, we will ensure that Rutgers is a global institution, with a globally engaged community and with students who are well-prepared to be global citizens.
