Livingston College History Panel


Last updated on May 26, 2022

The first Livingston Legacy program was held on March 11, 2009, with the LAA and the Livingston Campus Dean of Student Life celebrating the history and contributions of Livingston College.  Professors Edward Ortiz, Gerald Pomper and Gordon Schochet, all members of the Livingston College faculty in its early years, during a lively panel discussion shared their memories of the key years in Livingston’s development and impact on the overall Rutgers and global communities.

In March 2008, Pomper and Schochet spoke to the Livingston Campus Council about the college’s history and the need to preserve that history, according to a March 30, 2008, article from The Daily Targum. “It was a troubled place, but also a very exciting place,” Schochet said. “There were hard times, but we have overcome them.”
