After leading Rutgers in an exemplary manner since 2012, Dr. Robert L. Barchi, Rutgers’ 20th president, announced that he will step down from his presidency on June 30, 2020. The Rutgers Board of Governors has launched a search for Rutgers’ next president. The search and selection procedure that the University will follow is consistent with the current practices of peer institutions. It will provide opportunities for meaningful input from the entire University community. We are being aided in our search by the search firm of R. William Funk and Associates.

This website is the source for all information and updates regarding the presidential search. Interested parties are invited to check it frequently to learn of new developments as the process moves forward. We welcome input from any and all members of the University community and the public at any point in the process; comments may be sent to
