The herbarium has also been fortunate to have two Douglass College students working to help process new specimens and to maintain the existing collections contained in the herbarium.  Our most recent curatorial assistant has been able to work in the herbarium through the The Douglass Project for Rutgers Women in Math, Science, and Engineering: Project SUPER which is an enrichment program for undergraduate women.
