Message from Campus Director


"One of Rutgers University's mottos states "Jersey Roots, Global Reach". The Hult Prize is an International student competition that encourages students to create social enterprise business models that are destined to make a social impact! That idea can go from "perception to reality" with the potential of winning $1 Million for implementation! It is time for Rutgers University students to rise up to challenge and show their potential!"
