iTV: Helping Rutgers Communicators Bring Their Visions to Life

Scene from the Honors College video

When Dr. Matt Matsuda decided to create a signature video to showcase the new Honors College-New Brunswick, he wanted the medium to be as distinctive as the message. Since this handpicked community of 500 high-achieving students is known as a place for creative learning and new technology, Matsuda, the Academic Dean of the Honors College, wanted a similarly creative video­­. His vision was less talking heads and more interactive music video, both highly stylized and filled with animation as well as real life imagery.

“As the Uncommon Honors College, we wanted a leading-edge video to capture the spirit of what it actually feels like to be a student here. To be part of this journey of learning and discovery. We wanted it to have a graphic image quality rather than a documentary feel, and to creatively represent the student experience,” he said.

Then, One Returns to School to Become the Teacher

In 1999, Joe Monzo, then chief financial officer for Ewing Township, NJ, had more than 20 years experience in the public sector. Looking for an opportunity to advance his career, he considered pursuing a master’s degree — a suggestion made by the mayor of Ewing Township at that time.

“I chose the Rutgers Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) program because of the name and the convenient location in Mercer County,” says Monzo. He started the program a year later and graduated with his EMPA degree in 2001.

New State-of-the-Art Hands-On Radon Training Facility Built This Summer at Rutgers

For over 25 years, the Eastern Regional Radon Training Center (ERRTC) at Rutgers University has been providing training in radon measurement and mitigation to professionals throughout the country. To improve the learning experience for students, the ERRTC opened a brand-new, state-of-the-art training facility on the Cook Campus in summer 2015.

“Watching the new radon training facility being built from the ground up has been really interesting,” said Program Coordinator Pamela Springard-Mayer.

The new facility was used for the first time by students attending the July 15 Radon Mitigation class.

In the past, the hands-on portions of the Rutgers three-day Radon Mitigation Proficiency Course were taught at Rutgers' Environmental Health and Safety Building (affectionately known as "the slab") on the Livingston Campus in Piscataway.
