America Converges Here

A year ago, former President Barack Obama gave voice to one of the University’s deeply felt and long enduring truths, declaring that “America converges here” at Rutgers. Taking inspiration from his historic address, we have brought you stories of achievement, innovation, and impact.

We have shared with you examples of individuals making a difference on campus and off; highlighted research discoveries and innovative breakthroughs that could benefit how we work and live; and, celebrated as students across Rutgers University–New Brunswick united to raise more than $1 million for children and families in our community and beyond.

These profiles are a window into Rutgers University-New Brunswick and show how our path, as President Obama put it, “mirrors the evolution of America – the course by which we became bigger, stronger and richer and more dynamic, and a more inclusive nation.”
