Transforming the Way We Work at Rutgers

Cornerstone is the University’s strategic approach to unify, upgrade, and streamline its administrative information systems for finance, human resources and payroll, procurement, and expense management. It lays the groundwork to build outstanding administrative systems and processes for the University.

Modernizing systems, processes, and organizational structures will dramatically improve how we get work done, together, across all campuses, schools, departments, and units. This is the cornerstone of how we will conduct business going forward as one Rutgers.

This is a critical move toward creating a unified identity and culture, standardizing practices, and improving collaboration across Rutgers University–New Brunswick, Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences, Rutgers University–Newark, and Rutgers University–Camden.
