“We focus on problem solving and partnering with the community. The philosophy and programs at Rutgers-Camden can be used as a template for the future . . . I believe education is transformative in general, but it is especially true when it is incorporated with experiential learning and civic engagement.”

Phoebe Hadden, Chancellor, Rutgers University-Camden

"The way we run our classrooms and the way we connect those classrooms to our communities can have a lot to say about whether our teaching and learning practices are advancing a more diverse, socially just, and democratic culture."
