Launched as a “daring move” during the Great Depression, the Busch campus section of Rutgers University–New Brunswick has a can-do, eye-on-tomorrow spirit that has been its hallmark from the get-go. Today, it’s where ahead-of-the-curve medicine, science, engineering, and high-tech happen, where the Visitor Center welcomes all, and where fervent fans flock to cheer the Scarlet Knights at High Point Solutions Stadium.

Campus Dean and Dean of Students
The Campus Deans and the Office of the Dean of Students work collaboratively to enrich the academic experience of students and to provide support services. Their offices are located in the same building and they share a joint email account.
The Campus Dean, Thomas V. Papathomas, organizes academic programs and events that bring faculty and students together beyond the classroom.
The Dean of Students, Sandra Castro, focuses on campus well-being and assists students with medical, emotional, psychological, familial, or financial difficulties that are hampering academic success. If you find yourself struggling, the Dean of Students can help.
