The nation's

third Fastest-Growing

Public Research University


Affordability. Creative thinking. And a bold new direction. 

Now the nation’s third fastest-growing public research university, Rowan is breaking norms to meet the needs of a fast-changing world. 

Just 10 years ago, Rowan University could describe itself as a well-regarded state university with a nationally-ranked engineering program and a proud history as a teachers’ college. 

Today, Rowan is a dramatically different institution—and rising higher than ever.   

There is nothing ordinary about Rowan’s transformation. In the last decade, Rowan University:

  • became home to two medical schools, making Rowan one of only four institutions in the nation to grant M.D. and D.O. degrees
  • nearly doubled enrollment and academic programs
  • earned classification as a Carnegie R2 doctoral university with high research activity
  • attracted $155 million in private support
  • began developing New Jersey’s first veterinary school
  • and achieved high national ranking for dozens of programs, including business, engineering, medicine and communication. 

Rowan University has accomplished so much more. Read about our Rowan Revolution and just watch what Rowan does next.
