Please join the Newark Funders Affinity Group for a special presentation with Nancy Cantor, Chancellor of Rutgers University-Newark.  As head of one of Newark’s largest anchor institutions, Chancellor Cantor is engaged in multiple initiatives and investments that are driving the city’s resurgence. 

Nancy Cantor is Chancellor of Rutgers University – Newark, a post she assumed in January 2014. A distinguished leader in higher education, she is recognized nationally and internationally as an advocate for re-emphasizing its public mission. This entails a view of the university not as a traditional "ivory tower," but as a public good, an anchor institution that collaborates with partners from all sectors of the economy to fulfill higher education’s promise as an engine of discovery, innovation, and social mobility.  After leading a highly inclusive and democratic strategic visioning process at Rutgers University – Newark, in September 2014 Chancellor Cantor released the institution’s first strategic plan, which is designed to leverage the institution’s many strengths, particularly its role as an anchor institution in Greater Newark and its exceptional diversity.

Cost: Free to CNJG members, $35 for Non Grantmaking Member
