Exploring the opportunities and challenges in Public-Private Partnerships in university community development

Rowan Boulevard is a one-third mile long extension of Glassboro’s Central Business District that leverages the close proximity of the Borough and Rowan University to create a vibrant, thriving integration of academic, business, cultural, and commercial activities. From its genesis almost two decades ago, the now-busy Boulevard is the successful result of close collaboration among the public, institutional, and private partners, and innovative planning and design that have yielded a friendly, attractive environment for students, staff and visitors affiliated with Rowan University, as well as local Glassboro residents and business people.
