About Nexus

At Institutional Planning and Operations we are continually striving to provide the best tools possible to enrich the customer experience and support the Rutgers University community.

To enhance our capabilities, we’ve created Nexus, and we’ve changed our name to Nexus Administration.

Nexus will improve the delivery of services to the university community and provide streamlined access through a web-based portal.

Nexus will do this in four key ways:

  • Strengthen customer service
  • Enhance communication
  • Optimize user experience
  • Unify and centralize services

Nexus will allow IP&O to better serve the university community and advance the University Strategic Mission.

Nexus, at the center of what we do.


Nexus Groups

Nexus Facilities Condition Analysis and Strategic Planning

The Nexus Facilities Condition Analysis and Strategic Planning (FCA) group provides an enterprise-wide view and stewardship of physical assets and facility renewal needs statewide.

To support Strategic Planning and Reporting, the FCA team performs asset field inspections, collects and manages the asset and assessment database inventory of over 50,000 items, furnishing insight and analysis of capital improvement and deferred maintenance projects across all units within Institutional Planning and Operations.

FCA communicates the big picture, organizes the details, and monitors progress...creating a valuable and essential tool to help manage a vast asset portfolio.

 Nexus Data Governance

Nexus Data Governance strives to promote a culture of data literacy among IP&O staff. Data-supported insights will drive informed decisions. The Data Governance group develops dashboards, reports, and other decision support tools for core institutional metrics. Good data practices, accuracy, and clearly defined governance measures will be key factors for successful data integrity.

Nexus Data Governance manages data feeds for all Nexus systems, ensuring reliable and consistent primary data sources are maintained and available. Checks and balances are implemented within Nexus systems to produce both strategic and operational reports of value to the organization. In addition, this group documents all business processes and procedures for Nexus systems and ensures all inactive Nexus data is centrally archived.
