Rutgers University Athletics & R Big Ten Build Campaign Rutgers University Athletics has a storied history that began way back in 1869, when the first game of intercollegiate football was played between Rutgers and Princeton, which Rutgers won 6-4.
Since then, athletics at Rutgers has evolved into a Division 1 school in the highly competitive Big 10 conference with 24 athletic programs and over 600 student athletes from across the country. Several programs including basketball, football, soccer, wrestling, baseball and most recently lacrosse have achieved top 15 nationally ranked status at some point over the past 20 years. Rutgers is committed to building championship contenders in the Big Ten.
This commitment means the university must build premier training facilities for elite student-athletes from New Jersey, the nation, and around the globe. To fulfill this objective, Rutgers Athletics is embarking on the Big Ten Build, a targeted campaign to raise $100 million for new or upgraded athletic facilities. Phase I of R Big Ten Build, created in collaboration with the University Physical Master Plan, includes three projects: a Multisport Training Complex (RWJBarnabas Health Athletic Performance Center), adjacent to the Rutgers Athletic Center (RAC), a Lacrosse and Soccer Training Complex, and an enhanced Football Training Complex, at the Hale Center.
These pivotal projects will result in additional square feet of critical training space and will have a dramatic and wide-ranging impact on all 24 Rutgers athletic programs and on the 600 student-athletes who represent Rutgers on a national stage. R Big Ten Build will provide state-of-the-art practice centers for football, men’s and women’s basketball, wrestling, and gymnastics, as well as key support areas for men’s and women’s lacrosse, and men’s and women’s soccer. These facilities will meet a crucial need for high-performance training, exceptional academic support, first-class sports medicine, and critical shared pathways that will support a championship culture at Rutgers.
Rutgers Athletics’ core mission is to graduate student-athletes. To that end, the vacated space in the RAC will become a much-needed expanded academic center and gathering space for all 14 sports that train on the Livingston Campus. As the newest member of the Big Ten, Rutgers has gained unparalleled exposure.
The university’s ascent to national prominence will depend on your key support of this game-changing plan. More information on the Big Ten Build Campaign can be found at http://www.rutgersbigtenbuild.com Athletic Director Patrick Hobbs A New Jersey native with over 20 years of leadership experience in higher education and public service, Patrick Hobbs serves as the Director of Athletics at Rutgers University. Hobbs joined the Scarlet Knights on Nov. 29, 2015.
During his time at Rutgers, Hobbs restructured Athletics leadership to enhance communication, improve resource allocation and to enrich customer service and the game day experience. This new leadership is charged with developing a comprehensive strategic plan that will communicate a defined vision for Rutgers Athletics. He served as Dean at the Seton Hall School of Law from 1999 to 2015 and oversaw the Department of Athletics for the Seton Hall Pirates from 2009 to 2011 As the Interim Director of Athletics at Seton Hall, Hobbs assumed supervision of the department and led searches for men's and women's basketball head coaches.
He also conducted the search for and hiring of a permanent athletic director and added the sport of women's golf, which earned two Big East titles in the last five years. Another major accomplishment was negotiating a contract with the Prudential Center as a home site for men's basketball games. Hobbs was influential in fundraising at Seton Hall Law by spearheading the $25 million plus campaign, Seton Hall Law Rising, the school's largest fundraising initiative.
Part of the success stemmed from revitalizing alumni support with over 70 percent contributing during the campaign. During his tenure, Hobbs established several centers of excellence: The Center for Health & Pharmaceutical Law & Policy; the Center for Policy and Research; and the Gibbons Institute of Law, Science & Technology.
Under his leadership, Seton Hall Law achieved worldwide prominence through a series of groundbreaking initiatives emanating from the school's social justice mission.

Knupp has consistently exceeded his annual major gift fundraising goals, raising significant support for scholarships, facility projects, coaching salaries, and other operational support.
Major projects overseen in his tenure include developing the premium seating pricing model at Rutgers, initiating the first-ever letter winners association, Varsity R, and leading a critical fundraising campaign to renovate the Hale Center lobby, hallways, tunnel, and equipment room. Prior to Rutgers, Knupp was employed by Lehigh University as the Director of the Lehigh Athletics Partnership. He managed the overall fundraising efforts for the Athletic Partnership and led a team of five staff members that generated over $2.1 million in annual support.
Before entering the field of intercollegiate athletics, Knupp spent time as an Analyst for Merrill Lynch Global Markets and as a Senior Accounting Associate at Prudential International Insurance. Knupp acquired his B.A. in economics from Dartmouth College in 2005 and later earned his M.B.A. in finance from Lehigh University in 2011. While at Dartmouth, Knupp was a three-year letter winner in football at defensive end.
