Career Knights of Distinction Honorees

Due to COVID-19, we were unable to celebrate the outstanding 2020 Career Knights of Distinction honorees at an in-person awards dinner. However, with a shift to virtual communications, we came together to compile what we could to acknowledge these individuals for their commitment to the Rutgers career community. Congratulations to our 2020 honorees!
