Bloustein Public Service Association (BPSA)

Mission Statement:

BPSA, which was created to honor former Rutgers University President Edward J. Bloustein, an active citizen during his lifetime, seeks to provide a network for students interested in public service initiatives, career networking, professional development, socialization, and semi-annual trips to onsite locations that portray public health, planning, and/or policy concerns. Although many of the students interested in this organization may be enrolled as students at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, this organization is open to all Rutgers – New Brunswick undergraduate students, and is committed to actively supporting their interests through networking opportunities, career development and service.

About BPSA:

The organization was established during the fall 2006 term, and provides opportunities for networking, as well as participation in a variety of public service activities. BPSA endeavors may involve local government, and community-based and non-profit organizations in areas of interest that include community development, health, housing and transportation. Undergraduate students benefit by participating in the BPSA by gaining access to academic and career development activities, as well as mentoring and networking opportunities. All officers for the BPSA are required to be declared majors at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy. All Rutgers -New Brunswick undergraduate students from all disciplines are eligible to join the BPSA.
