Fact Base and Analysis

A critical component of the strategic planning process was the preparation of an extensive analysis of higher education data and trends, both nationally and in New Jersey, and an examination of Rutgers' strengths, points of distinction, and weaknesses relative to the nation's leading universities. This material, which was presented at the strategic planning retreats and shared with the university community, provided a robust fact base on which to organize the strategic framework and analyze the gaps between Rutgers and our peer and aspirational peer groups. Much of this information appears in the final plan.
