Urban outreach

Rutgers is gaining visibility for its efforts to reach out in the urban centers of NJ. The NJ Agricultural Experiment Station has established the Ye2s Center in Newark to help at-risk teens. Not what you first think of when you hear the name Ag Experiment, but it makes sense when you think about the mission of a Land Grant institution in an urban state like New Jersey.

Newark will get more attention after Corey Booker's State of the City address which has moved to NJPAC to accommodate overflow crowds
