Rutgers, The State Univ., New Brunswick, NJ.
A financial plan to help Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey achieve national stature is considered. Fundamental principles of the financial strategy include: as New Jersey's only comprehensive public research university, Rutgers is in a position to advance the development of New Jersey; the state should provide the university with the basic instructional and research support and facilities needed to compete for faculty, students, research projects, and private funds; fund raising should be supplemental to a basic level of state support; and the university should provided education opportunities for a diverse New Jersey citizenry. Recommendations for the state and for Rutgers are offered concerning: state and federal funds, tuition, business-university cooperation, private giving, real estate resources, and bonding. Specific recommendations include: the state should allocate a permanent $20 million addition to the operating base of Rutgers; the university should develop a detailed inventory of resources, needs, and advantages for increased business cooperation; and the university should expand its fund raising staff and programs. A list of members of the Committee on Future Financing of Rutgers University is included. (SW)
