Supporting the Academic Mission of the University

Rutgers Division of Continuing Studies

Division of Contining Studies


Welcome


Dear Colleagues, ince 1996, the Division of Continuing Studies (DoCS) has supported Rutgers University’s core academic missions of research, teaching and service. What began as an initiative to coordinate all of the continuing and distance education at Rutgers has grown into a thriving and diverse division of 20 units and 140 employees providing lifelong learning education that spans preschool programs to continuing professional studies to retirement enrichment.

S

We are proud of the many ways DoCS has become interwoven into the larger fabric of Rutgers, providing visible and behind-the-scenes support for students, faculty and staff. DoCS provides for the generation of significant revenue for the University, the vast majority of which is reinvested in the core academic programs situated in schools across the University. This reinvestment leads to the development of higher quality research, teaching and service as well as greater student support. In addition, our ability to reach all students—be it on campus, off campus or online—has opened the world of Rutgers up to a new, nontraditional population of learners. We are there for the student returning to school, the government official in need of a certification, the businessperson embarking on a new career, and the senior citizen seeking to expand his or her education. We salute and support all lifelong learners, and we continue to champion the academic mission of Rutgers, The State University.

DR. RICHARD NOVAK VICE

PRESIDENT,

DOCS

Special thanks to faculty and staff members Albert Ayeni, Irfan Bora, Kathi Cupano, Anna Harewood, James Luxhoj, Kevin Lyons, Terry Matilsky, Matt Matsuda, Sharon Stoerger, the Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center for the photo shoot.
