Jerome G. Rose Excellence in Teaching Award

Jerome G. Rose
Jerome G. Rose

The Jerome Rose Excellence in Teaching Award is presented annually to a full-time faculty member committed to quality teaching. Faculty and graduate students from both the Urban Planning and Public Policy Masters programs at the Bloustein School nominate recipients.

Dr. Rose was a Distinguished Professor of planning and environmental law at the Bloustein School from 1969 to 1996 and endowed this teaching award. At his retirement dinner, he declared, “My twenty-seven years at Rutgers have been the best years of my life.”  He passed away in 2013 following a brief illness.

Following his death, the school honored his legacy by designating the newly renovated student reading room on the first floor of the Civic Square Building as the Jerome G. Rose Reading Room. This designated “quiet space” offers students a relaxing, library-like space complete with seating areas and a laptop bar. The Rose family further continued his legacy with an additional gift that enhanced the Jerome G. Rose Distinguished Teaching Award.
