Joining the Big Ten® Conference is a momentous change for Rutgers. It brings new opportunities for academic collaboration and for athletic competition.
Rutgers is already an academic powerhouse. Joining the Big Ten means membership in the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, a consortium of 15 world-class research universities, including all Big Ten members and the University of Chicago. This alliance gives our students and faculty opportunities for meaningful scholarly collaborations as well as access to members-only databases, conferences, and library collections.
For our athletics programs, the Big Ten brings thrilling games and greater support for all our teams and student-athletes. View the Big Ten photo gallery.
Show your Rutgers support with special edition Big Ten apparel. Merchandise can be purchased at the Rutgers Barnes and Noble bookstore or online through Fanatics.
