New Jersey Project

The New Jersey Project coordinates, strengthens, and expands Eagleton's varied efforts to assist individuals, governments and organizations in shaping New Jersey's political and policy agenda. Begun in the fall of 1995, the project provides a focus for Eagleton's presence in the state and its efforts to increase awareness and understanding of New Jersey politics.

Members of Eagleton's faculty and its Centers have a long and distinguished record of contributing to the politics and governance of its home state. This project is designed to reinforce and extend Eagleton's commitment to the state through public service and educational programs, research efforts, informational assistance to individuals and organizations, and collaborations within and outside the Rutgers community.

The New Jersey Project is directed by Ingrid W. Reed. For information or discussing collaborative efforts, contact Reed at (732) 932-9384, ext. 232 or by e-mail at
