The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy positions Rutgers as one of the nation's key centers for public policy and planning scholarship and analysis. The school also serves as the major public policy forum for discussion and debate of critical issues within the state and region, while assisting New Jersey in the timely and effective development and implementation of appropriate programs and policies. It is one of the very few schools with the capacity to address policy and planning issues from the local to the international level with genuine expertise and credibility. A leader in the fields of environmental and public health, the school benefits from its proximity to many centers of research in related areas. It is comprised of three academic departments: public policy; urban planning and policy development; and urban studies and community health.
