For New Instructors
Our courses are taught by faculty members with many years of experience teaching graduate students like those in our program as well as by highly-qualified industry practitioners, valued for their theoretical and practical knowledge of the material. These courses have an excellent reputation: not only are they taken by our masters' students but also by doctoral students in mathematics, computer science, economics, engineering, physics, statistics, and other fields. Our program was recently ranked in the top 20 nationally, a group which includes Carnegie-Mellon, Chicago, Columbia, NYU, Princeton, and Stanford. Tuition for our program is high relative to other graduate programs at Rutgers. Therefore student expectations are justifiably also high and so we ask you to please review the following guidelines carefully. Naturally, if you have any questions, please ask as we are glad to offer advice or assistance.
We ask all instructors and their teaching assistants for their help in preventing academic dishonesty in our courses and in reporting incidents to our program's office. The advice on this page is designed to supplement the University's Academic Integrity Policy by providing guidelines and examples specific to our courses.
The purpose of the MSMF Early Warning Program (EWP) is to alert faculty and staff to potentially serious student problems. These problems can include academic, social, psychological, cultural and other problems. Many of our students may find themselves in very stressful situations, particularly our international students who are in a foreign country with a very different culture, values and ways of doing things.
It is critical that MSMF faculty and staff and other Rutgers resources work together to identify these problems and make the appropriate referrals to address these problems in a timely manner.
