Poised for Possibility in the New Year

As we begin a new year, full of new opportunities for our southern New Jersey region, it's also exciting for us to reflect on just how far we've come. In our first year leading Senator Walter Rand Institute (WRI) for Public Affairs at Rutgers-Camden, we increased our portfolio of work, connected more students to enriching projects in the region, and joined hands with more community partners who are committed to building knowledge for sound policy and practice in South Jersey. Read our annual report here.

At WRI, we're committed to a think-and-do tank approach, which not only guides our research but creates opportunities to drive change at the community-level, as you can see in some of the highlights below. There is more to come as we launch new projects in 2019, so be sure to keep up-to-date with WRImpact monthly and share the news with your colleagues and friends!
