Eagleton Report

Eagleton Report

Eagleton's 60th anniversary call to action — "Make It Better" — inspired a year of spirited debate among students, faculty, and friends of the Institute. Eagleton students explored the American political system — with its triumphs and failures — and imagined it better.

While our 60th celebrations have come to a close, the call to action continues. As the place for politics at Rutgers, we urge all of our students, alumni and friends to continue the quest to "Make It Better." Join us as we continue to foster greater understanding of how our political system operates and evolves, and help to "Make It Better."
