Byrne Seminars with Johnson & Johnson
The Byrne Seminars Program continues to provide innovative programming through the Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs, and this year we are pleased to announce the introduction of Byrne Seminars in conjunction with Johnson & Johnson. Our new collaboration will offer a suite of seminars co-taught by Rutgers faculty and Johnson & Johnson professionals.
For more than 120 years, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and Johnson & Johnson have partnered to advance academic, research, and community service endeavors. Building on this long-established relationship and legacy of leadership, these special seminars will enhance the learning experience of students from multi-disciplinary areas of study. This initiative will expand research ties, while introducing first-year students to an array of career and educational opportunities.
These highly-anticipated seminars will provide students with unique perspectives of faculty research and its application in a professional industry. Students will explore areas of common interest to both Rutgers and Johnson & Johnson, including global public health, health and wellness, ethics, community and leadership. In addition, students will have the opportunity to develop a mentoring relationship with both a Rutgers scholar and a corporate leader.
