Why this program is important
The Honors College at Rutgers University–Newark is a hub for excellence in education, undergraduate research, and applied learning. We have a diverse cohort of more than 130 students. As part of an interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum, Honors College courses challenge our students to embrace advanced engagement with and research in the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Our program culminates with a yearlong thesis project in which honors students produce original scholarship.
Your gift to Honors College-Newark Experiential Learning ensures learning beyond the classroom walls. It includes concrete experiences such as internships, study abroad, and research. The Honors College seeks to provide such learning experiences to include both hands-on and critical reflection.
What your donation makes possible
We seek to grow an experiential learning fund to offer programming beyond the classroom that will foster intellectual and social growth. This fund would allow students to participate in internships, travel abroad opportunities, and research by covering expenses students might not afford, such program fees, travel, and room and board.
