History of Rutgers Statewide Program
Rutgers Statewide, originally known as Rutgers Off-Campus Degree Completion Programs, launched its first partnership program in 1998 at Brookdale Community College. The program was developed in accordance with the recommendations presented to the N.J. Commission on Higher Education by the Blue-Ribbon Task Force on the Capacity of New Jersey’s Higher Education System. Their study, called for by the Higher Education Restructuring Act of 1994, found that the state’s northwest, southwest, and coastal regions were lacking in access to post-secondary degree programs. Rutgers Statewide addresses this need, enabling thousands of students to complete undergraduate degrees in one of over a dozen majors locally. Rutgers students pursue their educational goals at six community college partnership sites:
Rutgers at Atlantic Cape Community College
Rutgers at Brookdale Community College
Rutgers at Camden County College
Rutgers at Mercer County Community College
Rutgers at County College of Morris
Rutgers at Raritan Valley Community College
Convenient. Cost-effective. Connected to your Community. That's Rutgers Statewide.
