This position is anticipated to begin in October 2020 and run through the end of the 2020/2021 academic year, with a possible renewal for the 2021-2022 academic year. Although it is not a requirement of the position, strong preference will be given to current Rutgers graduate students.

For Faculty
For Faculty: Please Participate in the Upcoming International Engagement Survey
 
In the coming weeks, Rutgers University faculty will have the opportunity to share updates on their international activities through a survey administered by Rutgers Global.

Questions in this survey will address research and publications with international partners; travel abroad to perform research; hosting of students and scholars at Rutgers; involvement in teaching courses with significant global content at Rutgers; and interaction with Rutgers Global.

The information collected from this survey will help provide a more comprehensive overview of Rutgers’ global engagement. Information from the survey will also be sent to global academic ranking organizations. A positive impact in Rutgers' rankings may help with both international student and faculty recruitment.

Additionally, Rutgers Global will use the responses to help better support our faculty colleagues in their international endeavors.

Please check your email inbox for a link to this survey in the coming weeks, and thank you in advance for your participation.
