Military Activation Information

August 31, 2017

Rutgers Community,

On August 21, 2017, the White House announced that the United States would be expanding military operations in Afghanistan.  The Department of Defense is also currently mobilizing to provide relief and aid to those impacted by the devastating effects of Tropical Storm Harvey on the Gulf Coast.  In light of these events abroad and at home, a number of our students and staff face possible military activation in the weeks and months ahead.  Rutgers University is committed to supporting these service members and the following resources are available to assist.
