POSTPONED: Scarlet Speakers: "The Mess In Washington" with Colonel Jack Jacobs RC'66, GSNB '72 in Boston

Due to the rising concerns regarding COVID-19, Rutgers University has decided to cancel all University-sponsored events through through the month of May. Unfortunately, this means we will have to postpone our event at The Bostonian Boston on April 14th. We've had a lot of interest in this event, and we will make plans to re-schedule for a later date. We hope to see you at the re-scheduled event.


Please join Peter March, Executive Dean, Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences.


 Picture1Rutgers University graduate, Colonel Jacobs entered the U.S. Army in 1966 as a Second Lieutenant through ROTC. In Vietnam twice, he earned three Bronze Stars, two Silver Stars, and the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest combat decoration. In addition to a distinguished career in investment banking, Jacobs holds the Melcher Chair of Humanities and Public Affairs at the US Military Academy. As an on-air analyst for NBC News, he was part of the team that received the 2011 Murrow Award for the Nightly News segment “Iraq: The Long Way Out.” He is the author of the Colby Award-winning memoir, If Not Now, When?
