New Brunswick Chancellor
Our campuses are alive with excitement as the academic year comes to a close. The chemistry and chemical biology building is slated for completion in fall 2016, the year Rutgers will celebrate its 250th anniversary. Work is also progressing on the School of Arts and Sciences academic building next door to the Honors College. And Rutgers will take steps to begin implementing the bold and transformative Physical Master Plan approved by the Board of Governors last spring.
Rutgers' tradition of revolutionary teaching, research, and service has endured for nearly 250 years—a milestone few have reached. Join us for the many events planned during the yearlong commemoration of Rutgers 250, which will culminate in the 250th Anniversary on November 10, 2016. Visit 250.rutgers.edu to learn more.
In the coming year we will continue to execute the five-year New Brunswick Strategic Plan that was completed at the beginning of 2015. The many initiatives will include implementing web-based advising services, creation of task forces assessing the student experience and the establishment of off-campus student services office. We will keep you informed about these efforts, and I want to thank all the members of the New Brunswick community who are helping us make good on the vision laid out in the strategic plan.
