For generations society has relied upon universities and students to use their voice to work for the betterment of our communities. It is the mission of any university to teach students and endow them with the skills to create a real difference on the problems facing society.

For over forty years, NJPIRG Student Chapters have stood up to powerful interests to protect our communities and our democracy. As an independent statewide student organization, NJPIRG works to take on and solve issue relating to the public interest.

When the voices of ordinary citizens are drowned out by special interest lobbyists, then we as consumers are cheated. It is in this political climate that NJPIRG speaks up and takes action. Students work alongside professional organizers to gain concrete skills to serve the community. From working with the media to engaging the public and decision makers on policy issues, students have the opportunity to develop concrete organizing skills that allow them to make an impact.

In doing so, NJPIRG Student Chapters, has helped to fulfill our university's commitment to public service and has taught countless students how to be active participants in our democracy and communities.
