Rowan has attracted the attention of national organizations that evaluate colleges and universities. U.S. News & World Report ranks Rowan University 19th of Northern Regional Universities and third among the public institutions in the category. The College of Engineering is ranked 32nd nationally among master’s level programs and the Chemical Engineering program is ranked third. The Princeton Review included Rowan in its latest edition “The Best Northeastern Colleges” and included the Rohrer College of Business in its edition of the “Best 295 Business Schools” from among more than 1,800 business schools. The University has received 13 awards for green initiatives since 2007. Most recently, the U.S. EPA named the University a “Top Green Power Purchaser” in its athletic conference and The Princeton Review listed it in its “Guide to 322 Green Colleges.”

Rowan continues to expand its programs and partnerships. Among the most recent—and vital to higher education in New Jersey—was its June 2015 partnership with Burlington County College (now Rowan College at Burlington County) to improve access to affordable four-year undergraduate degrees. That move followed one two years earlier with Gloucester County College (now Rowan College at Gloucester County) that enables students to pursue Rowan bachelor’s degrees at the county college or transfer seamlessly to the University after earning an associate degree and meeting standards. From the modest normal school begun 94 years ago, Rowan University has become an extraordinary comprehensive institution that has improved the quality of life for the citizens of New Jersey and the surrounding states.
