Rutgers to Revitalize Packaging Engineering with Support from Advisory Board
An October 28, 2011 fundraising dinner at Rutgers University raised $110,000 to revitalize packaging engineering studies in the university’s School of Engineering. The fundraising event, organized by the Rutgers Packaging Engineering Advisory Board, drew more than 100 participants including packaging industry executives, Rutgers officials and a large contingent of students from the School of Engineering. Topline president, Charles Chang, is chair of the Advisory Board.

The contributions raised by the Advisory Board are earmarked for curriculum development, faculty recruitment, research and development, and student scholarships and internships. The Advisory Board is also undertaking an ambitious fundraising effort to establish a professorship endowed chair of packaging engineering at Rutgers. The goal is to raise $1.5 million from regional companies and suppliers in the packaging industry.

“An endowed chair will give Rutgers packaging engineering a solid legitimacy in the academic arena,” said Charles Chang. “It will enable the program to undertake significant research and development initiatives in packaging engineering and will leverage additional funding from other sources as well.”

The October 28th dinner, which will become an annual event, achieved and surpassed its fundraising goal with the help of many industry sponsors including Bayer HealthCare, Equity Packaging, Topline Products, Cultech, Estée Lauder, InterParfums, and L’Oréal Paris. In addition to these and other companies, the Rutgers Packaging Engineering Advisory Board membership includes representatives from Avon, Bristol Myers Squibb, Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, Mally Beauty, HCP-USA Packaging, Pfizer, Coty, Mary Kay, and Revlon.
