Rutgers University–New Brunswick represents a coming together of people, ideas, and sense of place like no other university in the nation. Join us for stories of convergence as we celebrate and explore the ways America Converges Here.
America Converges Here
A Rallying Cry
We take our inspiration from President Barack Obama's 2016 Commencement Address. "...In so many ways, the history of Rutgers mirrors the evolution of America—the course by which we became bigger, stronger, and richer and more dynamic, and a more inclusive nation.” These are exciting times at Rutgers. We look forward to sharing them with you.
A Convergence of People
At Rutgers, "every day, tens of thousands of students come here, to this intellectual melting pot, where ideas and cultures flow together among what might just be America's most diverse student body," President Barack Obama said in his 2016 Commencement Address. Meet some of these people and see the inspiring environment they create.
A Convergence of Ideas
Rutgers University–New Brunswick has a long tradition of interdisciplinary research where big ideas are debated, intellectual boundaries are redrawn, and new fields of inquiry are proposed. We use our social, cultural, racial, and economic diversity to reexamine old problems and devise fresh solutions.
A Convergence of Place
We are the flagship university of a compact state that enjoys tremendous geographic diversity. Rutgers University–New Brunswick's research touches all parts of the state and we share that locally generated knowledge to address national and global issues.
