The Big Ten Experience

Rutgers University–New Brunswick is a proud member of the Big Ten and the NCAA Division I.

It's More Than Sports

Membership in the Big Ten Conference unlocks exclusive opportunities for both students and faculty. The Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) is the athletic league's academic counterpart, made up of 14 top-tier research universities that together conduct $10.5 billion in funded research annually. Rutgers is proud to be a member of this prestigious group.

Big Dreams. Big Plans.

Rutgers is committed to building championship contenders in the Big Ten, and so the university has undertaken the R Big Ten Build, raising $100 million to construct premier training facilities for student-athletes from New Jersey, the nation, and around the world.

Progress Through Cooperation

When the best minds work together, anything is possible. Through collaborative programs of the BTAA, advances are being made across a wide range of sciences such as alternative energy, life-saving medicine, agriculture, and nutrition. Traveling scholars, summer research, and other opportunities abound. The UBorrow Library Sharing Service enables member schools to partake in one another’s resources for the benefit of all students. CourseShare makes 170+ less commonly taught languages available to students through distance learning.
