Rutgers–Camden Celebrates Opening of New Nursing and Science Building

The new teaching and research facility allows Rutgers–Camden to expand its ability to prepare a new generation of science and nursing leaders for New Jersey and the region.

Strengthening Rutgers University–Camden’s role as a regional leader in health care and the sciences, the 107,000-square-foot Nursing and Science Building, located at Fifth and Federal Sts. in Camden, has opened.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Sept. 25, officially dedicating the $62.5-million world-class teaching and research facility, which allows Rutgers–Camden to expand its ability to prepare a new generation of science and nursing leaders for New Jersey and the region.

“This is a transformative moment for Camden,” Rutgers–Camden Chancellor Phoebe Haddon told more than 200 guests in attendance. “This building represents Rutgers’ first bold step in forging an ‘eds and meds’ corridor that moves us closer toward our vision of a city where innovation in health care and bioscience commands the imagination of the world.”
