What's Happening at Rutgers
The first African-American student admitted to Rutgers’ New Jersey College for Women, now Douglass Residential College, Julia Baxter Bates was the NAACP’s lead researcher for two decades. Her work directly influenced the Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling, which declared school segregation unconstitutional. U.S. News & World Report ranks Rutgers first for women’s history.
