Mission of the School

The mission of the Bloustein School is to create just, socially inclusive, environmentally sustainable, and healthy local, national, and global communities.

Edward J. Bloustein--Rutgers president, constitutional scholar, active citizen, philosopher, and teacher--lived a life of civic engagement that the school's ethic seeks to perpetuate. Research, teaching, and outreach at the Bloustein School aim for intellectual originality and practical rigor in an atmosphere of spirited and open debate. Bloustein activities are rooted in the diversity of experience and thought. They create settings where individuals and communities can flourish.

The Bloustein ethic strives to improve the quality of public discourse by producing ideas and measures that have impact and engages those who do their jobs not just honorably, but with a passion for their work that alters their surroundings. The Bloustein School seeks to foster new research and thinking that achieve both scholarly recognition and public acceptance. Visit
