Senator Booker tours South Jersey Tech Park at Rowan University | Rowan today

US Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) on August 17 visited Rowan University’s South Jersey Tech Park, which includes federally funded research and development for the manufacturing, infrastructure and aerospace industries.

Booker visited the Tech Park’s Center for Research and Education in Advanced Transportation Engineering Systems (CREATES), the CAVE automated virtual reality environment, and the Institute for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing. He supported the designation of CREATES as the US Department of Transportation’s National University Center for Transportation, a program designed to address the need for safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly transportation by building partnerships between the government and the universities.

“Partnerships between the federal government and institutions of higher learning are what drive our nation’s innovation and prosperity,” Booker said. “Students, faculty and leadership at Rowan University are working on innovative projects—from rocket engine testing for NASA, to environmental studies for local governments, to research used in the aerospace and biomedical industries. I am proud to visit and see this research first hand today.”

“Rowan’s research capacity will continue to impact the greater good of the citizens of our great state. We are extraordinarily grateful for Senator Booker’s support and leadership as we work together to address New Jersey’s and our nation’s challenges, particularly in areas of health, transportation, food production and defense materials,” said Rowan President Ali A. Houshmand. .

“With the help of state and federal legislatures, Rowan University is poised to transform higher education in the state of New Jersey and beyond. As the nation’s third-fastest growing research institution, we are well on our way to our goal of becoming one of the top 100 research institutions.

“Pending accreditation, the Rowan University School of Veterinary Medicine will be the first in New Jersey,” Houshmand continued. “The collaboration between the veterinary school, our two medical schools, the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering, CREATES and industry partners places Rowan in a strong position to fulfill our mission to expand access to quality, affordable education while driving the economy. growth in the South Jersey region.”

Booker’s tour of the Tech Park was part of his 2022 summer trip to Jersey, a series of stops that highlight the priorities he continues to fight for in the U.S. Senate on behalf of the state’s residents. The road trip focuses on Booker’s ongoing commitment to serving New Jersey’s veterans, his efforts to secure congressional spending for critical New Jersey projects and organizations, and his support of local businesses and industries, among other things.

Booker toured the Tech Park with Houshmand, Rowan Provost Tony Lowman, Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering Dean Giuseppe Palmese, CREATES Director Dr. Yusuf Mehta, and engineering students. Gloucester County Commissioners also attended, as did other Rowan officials.
