Office of the President


Leading by Example

These are historic times at Rowan University. Our institution has long provided an excellent education for future teachers and lawyers, engineers and broadcasters, entrepreneurs and musicians, among so many more. We still do. But today, the climate here is even more exciting.

We are continuing to grow our programs and improve our facilities. We are in a unique public-private partnership that has lead to the construction of a retail, housing and academic corridor called Rowan Boulevard. We have partnered with Cooper Health System to create Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. There is, however, much more ahead.

I invite you to explore our website and learn more about what we offer our students and community. I hope you enjoy your visit.
