Alumnus Supports Political Science

Jeffrey I. Baron CCAS’69, RLAW’73 When Jeffrey I. Baron CCAS’69, RLAW’73 was growing up, he worked part-time for his father and grandfather in the grocery store they owned and ran only three blocks from the Rutgers University–Camden campus. Today, his father, Jacob Abraham Baron, and his mother, Mildred Amelia Baron, are the namesakes of a scholarship fund that Baron, an attorney and founding partner of Baron & Brennan in Voorhees, New Jersey, established in their memory. “Without them and Rutgers, I would never have realized the success I have been fortunate to achieve,” he said. The fund he endowed in 2010 supports a public lecture series, as well as student fellowships, research, seminars, visiting faculty, and academic awards.

Baron, a widely recognized authority in land use, zoning and planning, condemnation, and redevelopment issues, spent time with two of his scholarship recipients at the luncheon following the 2017 Baron Lecture: Tooba Hussain, a senior political science major and Colin Sheehan, a student in the dual-degree B.A./J.D. program. (Both are pictured above with Baron.) “Tooba’s and Colin’s achievements academically are extraordinary,” Baron said. “I am extremely proud of them and all the students our endowed fund has supported.”
