Rutgers and the United Nations

unflagsOne of the most exciting global initiatives at Rutgers is its affiliation with the United Nations (UN). Rutgers University is one of 27 universities worldwide that is affiliated with the United Nations Department of Public Information as a Non-Governmental Organization (UN DPI NGO).

In the five years since attaining this status, Rutgers has built a substantial partnership with the United Nations. In addition to Rutgers’ active participation as a UN DPI NGO, the affiliation has allowed hundreds of Rutgers students to visit UN Headquarters in New York City for briefings, conferences, internships, research, and networking opportunities related to issues of critical global concern.

This relationship puts Rutgers among the more than 1,700 international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) invited to participate in an annual UN conference on a pressing issue such as world health or disarmament. It also opens the door for students and faculty to network with NGOs from around the world and to access informational materials at a UN Resource Center at UN Headquarters in New York.

Rutgers’ close proximity to the UN Headquarters in New York becomes particularly advantageous with this affiliation. The university’s students and faculty are a train ride away from attending regular UN briefings and special sessions. Faculty can also arrange class trips for students to meet with diplomats, UN officials, or others active on the international scene.

As part of the Rutgers’ UN affiliation, UN Grounds Passes are awarded each year to two Rutgers Faculty Representatives and two Rutgers students who serve as UN Youth Representatives to represent Rutgers and its institutional affiliation at UN Headquarters in New York and on campus.

For more information about this exciting partnership, please review the list of current contacts for the Rutgers UN affiliation below.
