By the Numbers

Here are some more fast facts about the new Rutgers starting July 1:

This historic integration of Rutgers and UMDNJ will strengthen biomedical education and research statewide. The ultimate result will be a research university that will rank among the most prominent and elite institutions in America.

In FY2011, research expenditures at all three Rutgers campuses totaled $473.2 million, which is the most recent year the National Science Foundation has compiled data available. UMDNJ research spending in FY2011 was $228.8 million*, according to the National Science Foundation.  The combined FY2011 total of approximately $702 million for Rutgers plus UMDNJ would rank at #24 nationally that year, just below Texas A&M University and above major institutes such as Harvard, Northwestern University, Purdue, and the University of Illinois.

*Not including the approximately $5.6 million in research at UMDNJ’s School of Osteopathic Medicine.


Rutgers:  $473.2 million

UMDNJ:  $228.8 million

The $702 million total would rank

#24 among all U.S. universities,

#16 among public U.S. universities.

The new Rutgers also will have:

More than 15,400 full- and part-time staff members across all campuses

More than 9,000 full- and part-time faculty members across all campuses
