Business and Community Outreach

The College is committed to be an important resource for the business and economic development community in South Jersey.  Through this commitment, the Rohrer College of Business has established several yearly programs, as well as various events, to support and develop Rowan University and the surrounding community.

Entrepreneurship Boot Camp

One of the many programs offered by the RCB to local students, this boot camp provided local high school students with a two week crash course in starting a business and developing a business plan.

Project Based Learning

Project-based learning is an educational initiative offered at Rowan University, developed by the Rohrer College of Business. Its chief purpose is to bring real-world projects into the classroom, and in some cases, bring the classroom to the real world. 

South Jersey Working Together Conference

The Working Together program continues to promote the positive ongoing relationship between the tax practitioner community and the Internal Revenue Service. The annual meeting, open to both IRS employees and the practitioner community, has become a “mark your calendar” event for many New Jersey tax professionals. The intent is to engage in ongoing, meaningful dialogue aimed at improving our dealings with one another, thereby improving service to our common customer – the taxpayer public.

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA)

Offered for over 35 years at Rowan and presented in partnership with the Internal Revenue Service, free tax help is available through the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Program.  Typically offered from February through April, Rowan University VITA Certified Students meet with community members that qualify for the free program in Business Hall. The VITA program generally offers tax return preparation and e-filing to people who earn $54,000 or less annually.  For more information about VITA at Rowan University, and how to sign up for assistance, please click here.
