Faces and Voices tells the Rutgers story through its greatest asset—the students, faculty, staff, and alumni who make it a dynamic place of discovery. In this video series, President Jonathan Holloway sits down with 10 unique individuals to learn how they personify the university’s commitment to diversity and achievement in its education, research, and community outreach quests. These encounters were essentially the first time since becoming president in July 2020, when the COVID-19 pandemic was raging, that Holloway was able to talk to people in person.
On the heels of Rutgers return to campus, this series engages members of our beloved community and reminds us that this is what excellence looks like.
Faces & Voices is a collaborative effort among University Communications and Marketing, Rutgers iTV Studio, Rutgers Communications and Marketing, and the Office of the President – with independent video specialists – to tell the Rutgers story through conversations that illustrate the university’s diversity, scope, and impact. The series engages members of our beloved community and reminds us that this is what excellence looks like.
“After a year of virtual meetings and isolation, I thought about the best way for me to discover Rutgers University,” said Holloway. “I knew it had to start with meeting its family.”
“Rutgers for too long has shied away from embracing aspirations worthy of its potential. We have been cautious about telling the world who we are and what we can become. While we should not let hubris be our guide, let us be unafraid to be bold, comfortable in our skin, and confident in our abilities. The theme of this inaugural year, ‘Rutgers: This Is What Excellence Looks Like,’ is embodied in this call and it captures my vision for the university.”
