When everyone’s world was turned upside down by the pandemic, the Rutgers community came together as never before to find solutions, to inspire, and–as always–to educate. This campaign takes the lead in communicating the value of a world-class research institution and our contributions to the global community as we combat COVID-19 on many different fronts.
There’s much to be proud of at Rutgers–New Brunswick: a top university in the northeast and a top 25 public university nationwide. R-Comm is communicating the value of our far-reaching opportunities, a place where students can thrive; while also promoting our reputation of supporting the global community. Leveraging our rankings is one way to entice prospective parents, students, and faculty to explore all that Rutgers has to offer.
This is a pact with our communicators, a commitment to a clearer, stronger identity. Uniting under one brand will elevate Rutgers universitywide. The need to bring our wide-ranging areas of expertise into a single platform is undeniable, a step that will enable the university to articulate its value and what we stand for. A unified brand empowers us to promote the university as a whole rather than its individual priorities, and will ultimately help Rutgers continue to build its community.
