Richard Merritt

Richard Merritt started at Rutgers in 1950 as a student at Rutgers College, and save for his service in the U.S. Air Force, never left he became an instructor at Rutgers in 1956 and has worked here ever since. On May 3, Merritt and 148 other faculty members were honored at the annual Faculty Service Recognition Luncheon. Merritt was the sole honoree for 50 years of service; eight faculty members were honored for 40 years of service; and 42 were honored for 30 years of service. Merritt, a professor of plant biology and pathology on the Cook College faculty, has served in a variety of administrative and faculty positions. He played an integral role in internationalizing education, forming several partnerships between Rutgers and schools abroad, and creating new institutions in Costa Rica, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Oman.
