The official uniform of many college students—jeans, flip-flops, sweats—won’t pass muster in the boardroom. It won’t even get you into the boardroom, says Ruben Britt, assistant director of Rowan University’s Career Management Center (CMC).

Rowan's offering tons of Homecoming activities for students, alumni & more.

The focus will be on ability—rather than disability—as Rowan University’s Academic Success Center and Disability Resources mark Disability Awareness Week from Oct. 15-18.

The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) recently accredited the baccalaureate program (R.N.-to-B.S.N.) at Rowan University for five years. According to CCNE, the organization determined that the program met all four accreditation standards and did not exhibit any compliance concerns related to key elements. The standards include mission and governance, institutional commitment and resources, curriculum and teaching-learning practices and aggregate student and faculty outcomes.

Tuition and fees for students at Rowan University will increase by 3 percent under a $285.5 million fiscal year 2013 budget approved by the University's Board of Trustees earlier this month.
