Rutgers University


An overview of the four entities of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, mission of the University, and general facts can be found in About Rutgers. The Rutgers Communication Team has prepared a Rutgers Overview Presentation.

A brief history of key events throughout Rutgers history of more than 250 years.

Integration of UMDNJ and Rutgers:

The New Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act was passed by the New Jersey Legislature on June 28, 2012. It integrated all units of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), except University Hospital in Newark and the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Stratford, into Rutgers on July 1, 2013.

The Office of Institutional Research and Academic Planning (OIRAP) gathers, analyzes, and uses data to inform institutional planning, policy development and decision-making. 

OIRAP provides easy access to the following (but not limited to): 

Rutgers Communications provides university-wide communications tools, branding/visual identity, and additional resources. 

The Senate is a university-wide deliberative body consisting of representatives of Rutgers faculty, students, staff, administrators, and alumni. The Senate considers matters of general University interest, and makes recommendations to the University administration on those matters. 

The page provides a compilation of regulations and policies approved by the university’s Board of Governors, the Board of Trustees, the President and executive officers to: enhance missions and strategic goals; reduce institutional risks and enhance internal controls; establish delegation of authority and responsibility; promote compliance with federal, state and other applicable laws and regulations; and promote operational alignment, consistency and efficiency. (RBHS specific policies are found under Section 2, Item 4).

UHR provides university-wide resources for benefits, online services, and policies, such as FMLA, Death in the Family, Employee Assistance, and more. Please note that there is a legacy UMDNJ section that covers many of the RBHS units (UMDNJ 60.9).

University Ethics and Compliance oversees the University Code of Conduct and yearly mandatory training for faculty and staff, among other responsibilities.
