Make a Difference during the Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 15 (Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2018)

To the Campus Community:

As Rutgers University–Camden enters the new year, I am pleased to report that our campus is buzzing with activity.

Our winter session is in full swing and our law students will start their semester on Wednesday, Jan. 10. The spring semester for the rest of our community starts on Tuesday, Jan. 16. Our women’s and men’s basketball teams will compete in a number of home and away games before the start of the semester, and I encourage you to check out their schedules and cheer them on to victory.

During this time, our faculty and students continue to pursue research innovations that hold the potential to define new boundaries of knowledge, while our reputation as a national model for civically engaged universities continues to grow and attract to Rutgers University–Camden the best and brightest students and faculty who seek opportunities to help transform communities.

All of us have an upcoming opportunity to make a difference in our neighborhood in a very short period of time. During the Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 15, members of the Rutgers University–Camden community will participate in activities that will strengthen the quality of life for families and organizations in Camden. These efforts honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and spotlight Rutgers–Camden’s characteristic passion for civic engagement and collaboration.

Under the auspices of our Office of Civic Engagement, Rutgers–Camden’s community partners will include Bancroft, CamCare, Center for Environmental Transformation, Cooper-Grant Neighborhood Association, Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, Neighborhood Center, New Jersey Tree Foundation, UrbanPromise, and Volunteers of America.

Many activities are available for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and their families. Whether you choose to participate in this campus initiative or some other form of engagement, I encourage you to take some time to improve your community, both on Jan. 15 and throughout the year.

I hope that you will join me at the 2018 Martin Luther King Day of Service on Monday, Jan. 15. Please accept my best wishes for a happy and successful new year.

Phoebe A. Haddon, J.D., LL.M.
