About Us

Rutgers Magazine—which celebrates the research, teaching, and service missions of Rutgers as well as the achievements of alumni—is published three times a year, in February, May-June, and September, by the Department of University Communications and Marketing and the Department of Alumni Relations at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. It is distributed to nearly 430,000 alumni and friends as well as Rutgers faculty and staff, legislators, local government officials, and high school counselors around the state.

The magazine began in 1914 as Rutgers Alumni Quarterly and became Rutgers Monthly in 1921 and Rutgers Alumni Magazine in 1969. In 1987, the Department of University Relations began publishing Rutgers Magazine, which today is jointly published by the Department of University Communications and Marketing and the Department of Alumni Relations.
