Celebrate the Bloustein School’s 25th Anniversary with a donation of $25!
We are aiming for 250 donors in honor of Rutgers’ 250th birthday
Be a part of Rutgers Giving Day—a 24-hour online university-wide fundraising event. It’s a call to action for the Rutgers community and a great opportunity to support the Bloustein School.
Since 1992, the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy has revolutionized student experiences and faculty research, impacting lives not only in New Jersey but throughout the world. On Rutgers Giving Day—November 29, 2016—Bloustein School supporters will have a chance to amplify that impact in a whole new way.
Paint November 29 Scarlet
Scarlet is more than a color; it’s a deep-down, lifelong feeling of community and pride. The second annual Rutgers Giving Day, to be held on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is an opportunity for the Bloustein School community to show the world what it can accomplish together.
On Rutgers Giving Day, university alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends will “paint the day scarlet” by giving to their favorite Rutgers causes and, in many cases, by inspiring others to join them. Through social media challenges held throughout the day, participants will have opportunities to earn additional funds for the areas they want to support.
Urban planning. Public health. Public policy.
The Bloustein School is where these three diverse fields converge, and this convergence provides our students with the opportunity to understand the important role of planning and community design in public health, and the role of public health in planning and policymaking processes.
Planning and policy decisions at the state and local levels are integral to achieving healthy communities and supportive infrastructure. The Planning Healthy Communities Initiative at the Bloustein School seeks to make New Jersey the healthiest state by working to: develop tools and analyses linking health outcomes with planning and public policy decisions; produce best practices and other resources that state and local decision-makers can deploy to advance a Health in All Policies framework; and promote Health Impact Assessment as a tool for evaluating future health impacts of planning and policy decisions.
Please support the Planning Healthy Communities Initiative by making a gift to the Bloustein School’s Academic Excellence fund today.
This November 29, make a gift at GivingDay.Rutgers.edu and follow the excitement on Rutgers social media pages. Spread the word using #RUGivingDay and become a Scarlet Voice now at Ralumni.com/ScarletVoice.
