Meet the Staff

Our overall mission is to help provide Rutgers University–New Brunswick with the classroom resources it needs to succeed in its research, teaching, and service endeavors. To do this, we schedule courses, exams and events; help plan changes, upgrades, and additions to our classroom stock; and track and analyze classroom usage. We are guided by the concept of an Ecosystem for Learning, which recognizes that spaces, courses and other forms of programming and content, technology, and networks of individuals and groups form a unified landscape upon which the student intellectual and developmental experience occurs.

Our course scheduling staff work closely with departments to gather and validate course information and classroom requests in advance of the creation of the course schedule. Once the schedule is created, the staff works with departments to gather feedback and change requests. The staff also manages the Master Course List, changes to prerequisites, and course notes, and works with the Office of Disability Services to ensure student accessibility. Our exam and event staff works with a broad range of faculty, staff, and student groups to ensure our general purpose classrooms are best used for these important university functions.
