|Mission||The Bloustein School educates professionals in urban planning, public policy, and public health, and it houses an energetic applied research enterprise. Both the academic programs and the research groups have attained high national rankings and impact, especially in the areas of risk/environment/energy planning, transportation planning, community development, health policy, workforce development and social policy. The faculty and research staff are leaders in multi-disciplinary collaborations that often span units at Rutgers and beyond, and the administrative staff are exemplars of best practice in student services and business support. The Bloustein School seeks to improve our increasingly urbanized and interconnected world by exploring planning approaches and public policy solutions that are healthier, greener, fairer, and generate greater prosperity than do current practices. It pursues equitable and efficient solutions to public problems at multiple levels from the global to the local and emphasizes social engagement through the professional perspectives of urban planning, public policy, and public health.|
