What has happened to date

  • University Strategic Plan has been drafted; goes to Board Feb 1.

  • Sets priorities in several substantive areas

  • Relates very heavily to NB but not as much to us

What we have done in Newark

  • Developed an explanatory presentation for the Board of Govs

  • Presented a vision for a campus to the University Senate


What we have learned so far

What we have learned so far

  • Wide excitement about taking on the challenge before us

  • Belief that we need to be clear about our excellence

  • Strong sense that teaching must be prioritized

  • Need to emphasize importance of staff in making RU-N great

  • Need to build a process that is broadly democratic and participatory


A window of opportunity

A Window of Opportunity

  • In New Jersey and nationally, Rutgers Newark is a great research university that is building and creating an inclusive educated community/workforce

  • There is a great appetite for solidifying the strengths of Rutgers as the state university of New Jersey

  • We are what a great research university needs to be in the 21st century

  • We need to grow into our story—what we already are and what a good inclusive process of envisioning our future can help us become

  • The “New” Rutgers creates a new Higher Ed reality in Newark:

  • New budgetary autonomy; greater state investment

  • New Rutgers-Newark leadership

  • Fresh array of public and private partners


Rutgers newark as leader in 21 st century higher education

Rutgers Newark as Leader in 21st Century Higher Education

  • Changes in higher education nationally create

  • New challenges—but we are already a leader in meeting those challenges

  • New opportunities to build on our historic mission and our strengths


What s next a democratic process

What’s Next: A Democratic Process

  • Exploring the Soul and Building the future of Rutgers Newark

  • Listening Tour
