Fulbright Rutgers–Newark

Rutgers–Newark is proud to be named a Fulbright Hispanic-Serving Institution leader for the second year in a row by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). This designation recognizes the noteworthy engagement that selected Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) have achieved with the Fulbright Program, the U.S. government's flagship international educational exchange program.

When Sandra Harris founded the Douglass Development Disabilities Center (DDDC) in 1972 little was known about autism, and the services needed to help children with this neurological developmental disorder were scarce.

Fifty years later, as the DDDC commemorates a half-century supporting the autism community and providing training for professionals, the prevalence of autism has risen with 1 in 44 8-year-old children in the United States and 1 in 35 in New Jersey on the autism spectrum.
