Transforming the Way We Work

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.


Cornerstone is a multi-year strategic project to transform the administrative information systems and processes for Rutgers University. It lays the groundwork to modernize, unify, and simplify our finance, human resources and payroll, procurement, and expense management systems and processes.

This is a pivotal move toward creating a single 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.

What success will look like

At the conclusion of the Cornerstone project, the university will have standard and efficient business processes, effective and robust analytics, unqualified financial audits, consolidated reporting, and a streamlined operational support organization.
