Rutgers Giving Day 2022

March 23, 2022

Celebrate 30 years of the Bloustein School with a donation of $30!

Excellence doesn’t happen overnight. It takes a community of dedicated alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends who come together when it counts. This Rutgers Giving Day, March 23, we all have an opportunity to better the world—to make a collective impact for the next generation of Bloustein School students.

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 DayMarch 23, 2022—Bloustein School supporters will have a chance to amplify that impact in a whole new way.



Robert Nardi LC ’75, MCRP ’78 and Robin Nardi will generously match the first $10,000 raise for the Academic Excellence Fund!

The Bloustein School fosters a highly-collaborative academic, scholarly and professional environment, preparing students to be the planning, policy, and health leaders of tomorrow. The school conducts cutting-edge, policy-relevant research and scholarship, cultivates leadership in public engagement and community service, and addresses crucial policy issues of our time.


With the Bloustein School’s upcoming 30th anniversary to be celebrated during the 2022-2023 academic year, Mary Ann (COOK ’80) and Steven Allard (MCRP ’79) wanted to bring together the school’s alumni and build on the legacy of support which their generation of students has established.


The Bloustein School will be celebrating its milestone 30th Anniversary during the 2022-2023 academic year. In addition, the school’s public policy program will be celebrating 66 years, the planning program will be celebrating 55 years, and the health program will be celebrating 46 years, respectively.

We are so excited to celebrate the 30th Anniversary with you! The 2022-2023 academic year will feature named lectures, symposiums, alumni events, fundraising events, and graduation. We have an exciting homecoming weekend planned for October 2022.

The mission of the Bloustein School is to create just, socially inclusive, environmentally sustainable and healthy local, national and global communities. Our students embody the school’s mission of improving the public good.  We’re counting on you to help the Bloustein School prepare its graduates to help the world—by making a gift on #RUGivingDay, you can help us to new heights of achievement and success.

It’s not about how much you give. It’s about how many of us are giving. We ask that you take part in Rutgers Giving Day by supporting the fund that gives you hope. Every gift on #RUGivingDay makes an impact. For one day, your gift can do even more.

Urban planning. Public health. Public policy. Health administration. Public informatics.

The Bloustein School is where these 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.

The Bloustein School affects many causes, including sustainable and resilient communities, equitable and accessible housing and transportation systems, reduction of health disparities, HIV prevention, prison reform, along with best practices for negotiation and conflict resolution, evidenced-based policy models regarding education, energy, the environment and more.
