NJ Poverty Reality is designed to be an ongoing analysis of the true magnitude of poverty in New Jersey. All of my conclusions from my continuous research are published on this page as they occur. It’s main purpose serves to be an online reference point for myself, as well as a way for my peers and mentors to offer feedback. This page has also been created in hopes of shedding light on the issue to those who normally reject the true reality that exists in the Garden State.
We are very happy to announce that our affiliated scholar and colleague Lori Minnite has been reappointed Associate Professor with tenure.

In Rutgers University–Camden’s interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in public affairs, students learn that community development takes place at the intersections of increasingly complex and globalized economic, political, legal, and social systems.
A testament to this comprehensive approach, 10 Ph.D. students in public affairs are making research presentations – each unique in its focus on policies and practices – at the 44th annual conference of the Urban Affairs Association, held from March 19 to 22 in San Antonio.
“I am very proud of the accomplishments of the Ph.D. students and their contributions to urban-affairs research,” says Marie Chevrier, chair of the Department of Public Policy and Administration at Rutgers–Camden and head of the Ph.D. program.
It is a remarkable achievement for a relatively new program, and an impressive accomplishment for the university, adds Paul Jargowsky, director of the Center for Urban Research and Education at Rutgers–Camden.
