Expect more. Achieve more.
Welcome to Rowan University, Camden Campus. Conveniently located in the University District of Camden, New Jersey, Rowan has been part of the Camden community for over 40 years. We have experienced positive growth from our early beginnings as Glassboro State Urban Center, providing training for local teachers and assistants, to a growing branch campus with academic majors, graduate programs, general education courses, an English as a Second Language program, an Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program, and a variety of additional academic and student services. We have a long-standing tradition of providing education to a diverse group of students.
All courses at the Camden Campus are taught by members of the university faculty who take pride in teaching and who make student learning their top priority. Our schedule accommodates the needs of both traditional and nontraditional students. Our daily shuttle bus travels between our Camden and Glassboro campuses to provide both an urban and suburban university experience for all Rowan students.
In addition to assisting students with their academic goals, we have many programs to provide support and services to other members of the community. For over 20 years, the campus has been the home of CHAMP/GEAR UP, a program providing pre-college services to youth in high school.
As we look toward the future, we plan to expand the campus. We will increase the access to higher education for our undergraduate population through special dual enrollment programs for area high school students. New majors for undergraduate students at the Camden Campus are also under development by our faculty and administration. Through the offering of continuing education and certificate programs, employees of local corporations will be able to enhance their skills to succeed in their professions.
I invite you to learn more about us by visiting our website or contacting our office. Join us this 2011-2012 academic year as we celebrate 40 years of service to the community. We look toward a future filled with academic achievement andsuccess.
