The impending integration of Rutgers University with most of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey has received a major financial boost—a $12.5 million grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the university and the foundation announced last week.
The grant—the largest single gift that Rutgers has ever received from the foundation—will support a wide range of initiatives that are essential to integration. The grant, from one of New Jersey’s most prestigious foundations, is the latest example of strong statewide support for integration. Learn more.
Beginning July 1, 2013, all UMDNJ entities being integrated into Rutgers will be required to follow the standards and policies that are part of the Rutgers Visual Identity System, and legacy UMDNJ faculty and staff will receive Rutgers NetIDs that will give them access to those files on the Rutgers identity website.
Prior to July 1, legacy UMDNJ faculty and staff who require identity packages can obtain them from key contact people located at each unit. Visit our website for more details.
Tuesday, June 4, 4 to 6 p.m.
