A brief description of the institution’s assurance process:
All reviewers were given access to the Rutgers report through the STARS portal. They reviewed the Rutgers responses and commented on them using the STARS review template. After the first review, Rutgers made the necessary edits and a second round of review was conducted. At that point, all reviewers were satisfied that all criteria were met.
