Fourth-fastest growing

Diverse by design

More access, more success

Strategy, Strength and Stability


Ali A. Houshmand, Ph.D.Usually, transformation requires vision and time to redirect gradually. But in just the last decade, Rowan University dramatically, deliberately reshaped itself into a model for strategic change, becoming the nation’s fourth fastest-growing public research university.

And now that nothing in the world is “usual,” Rowan’s extraordinary agility and ability to solve problems prove the institution’s strength and value even more. Our impressive record continues to attract talented students and faculty, as well as donors, investors and partners.  

In uncertain conditions that stunt others’ growth and potential, Rowan leads with bold imagination and nimble execution. We are still stable and focused on creating opportunities, pathways and partnerships.

Rowan stands strong as an inclusive, dynamic, effective community of scholars, researchers, healers and leaders.

I invite you to learn more about transformation with purpose, capacity and confidence—and how to share Rowan’s transformative power.

Very truly yours,

Ali A. Houshmand signature
