Academic Reputation
Expect to be challenged.

An academic powerhouse with an international reputation: that’s Rutgers, New Jersey’s state university and one of the best public research universities in the US. If you’re an ambitious student looking for a first-class education, Rutgers delivers. Top-ranked academic departments. Internationally recognized schools and colleges. Acclaimed faculty of scholars and scientists. Rutgers has bold aspirations and high expectations.

  • Rutgers is a member—so are Harvard, Yale, and Berkeley—of the prestigious Association of American Universities, the 61 leading research universities in North America.
  • More than 175 Rutgers research centers support pioneering work in stem cells, climate change, DNA analysis, and more.  
  • Rutgers’ international reputation draws top students from more than 130 countries and all 50 states.
