A core tenet of the Rutgers University-Newark strategic plan is Investment in Our Students. This means that we seek to optimize the student experience inside and outside of the classroom. We seriously commit to building community, supporting student wellbeing, and helping students to grow and develop. Faculty play an integral role in student development and often are the first to learn about student concerns or to encounter situations in which students require support and assistance. These resources are intended to support faculty members as you address many student needs.
