Donations and Giving

The recent financial crisis has hit all areas of the economy hard. As a public university, Rutgers is dependent on the State of New Jersey but receives less than a third of its funding from the State. Another 23% comes from student tuition and fees. Yet, Rutgers has managed to remain one of the top research universities in the country.

The Department of Art History is recognized for its excellence among the university programs. Art History graduates have gone on to excell in various fields of endeavor. You can help strenthen the work of the Department of Art History
