Rutgers President Robert L. Barchi welcomes faculty, staff and students from the schools, centers and institutes that made up the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. The new Rutgers University -- academically stronger, energized by an expanded mission of medical education -- begins July 1st, 2013.
"For decades, Rutgers has been recognized for outstanding faculty, students and programs in the arts, sciences, humanities, social sciences and professional schools," President Barchi said. "Combining our many existing strengths with our broader mission of medical education will elevate Rutgers to the ranks of the nation's finest comprehensive research universities."
The new Rutgers will:
• Offer undergraduate, graduate and professional school students a more complete education, with access to interdisciplinary programs not previously available.
• Strengthen public-private partnerships between Rutgers and the health-care industry statewide, nationally and globally.
• Create new economic opportunities for New Jersey businesses and residents.
• Launch new research initiatives to tackle many of society's most difficult challenges.
The restructuring act creates Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, which includes all of the schools and institutes that made up UMDNJ except for University Hospital in Newark and the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford. University Hospital is now a freestanding institution, but remains the principal teaching hospital for the Newark-based medical and dental schools. The School of Osteopathic Medicine is now part of Rowan University.
