Chancellor's Signature Events Series Committee

As is appropriate for a public research university, Rutgers–Camden is working to grow – and increasingly be recognized– as a vibrant center for intellectual and cultural activity, serving the campus community and attracting participants from the Delaware Valley and around the world. In an effort to encourage thoughtful activity of this nature, the chancellor has established the Signature Series and Events Committee and charged that standing committee to develop a robust schedule that will increase engagement among on-campus and external audiences. The committee invites the submission of proposals for the development of events that would be held during the 2013-14 academic year. These proposals offer an opportunity for faculty to:

  • Develop an event (e.g., academic conference, public lecture) that leverages your research area with campus strengths to attract internal and external audiences. 
  • Seek modest financial, planning, and marketing support from campus administration.
  • Position Rutgers–Camden as a regional and national leader in scholarly discourse.
  • Share your work and research.
