Sent Monday, April 9, 2018

To the Campus Community:

Every day, Rutgers University–Camden works to advance the communities of southern New Jersey and the region.

In recognition of the many extraordinary efforts associated with our civic engagement initiatives, I am pleased to announce the recipients of the 2018 Chancellor’s Awards for Civic Engagement. We will celebrate the accomplishments of these honorees during a special reception on campus at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 26. If you wish to attend, please register online.

The Rutgers University–Camden community is dedicated to supporting the citizens of New Jersey as they solve problems, meet challenges, and seize opportunities. Our students, faculty, staff, and alumni make good on that commitment in their Rutgers roles and as members of communities and organizations of all kinds. Rutgers University–Camden continues to earn an expanding reputation as a national model for civically engaged universities.
