Rutgers since 1945

A History of the State University of New Jersey

Rutgers University Press

In the 1940s, Rutgers was a small liberal arts college for men. Today, it is a major public research university, a member of the Big Ten and of the prestigious Association of American Universities. In Rutgers since 1945, historian Paul G. E. Clemens chronicles this remarkable transition from the cold war, to the student protests of the 1960s and 1970s, to the growth of political identity on campus, and to the increasing commitment to big-time athletics, all of which are just a few of the innumerable newsworthy elements that have driven Rutgers’s evolution.
