America Converges Here

Innovation is a hallmark at Rutgers. Our faculty, students, and alumni have been responsible for truly life-changing ideas and breakthroughs for more than 250 years. Exploring big ideas is fundamental to Rutgers’ culture, and part of why we are a national research powerhouse.

As we continue the America Converges Here initiative, we want to celebrate the big ideas that start here. Please enjoy this month’s video where we will meet…

  • A School of Engineering professor and student who have discovered a novel way to make a material that is 100 times stronger than steel and may revolutionize how we approach industrial, chemical and medical processes in a wide range of industries;
  • The President and CEO of Moretrench, an industrial construction company putting Rutgers' revolutionary policy research to work for the betterment of its workforce;
  • And student entrepreneurs with a new app to enhance campus safety here and, soon, at campuses around the country.

Our big ideas are making a difference in the world every day. Today we celebrate all of them and look forward to more big ideas to come.
