The Bloustein School is pleased to announce that Assistant Professor of Teaching Jane Kaye is the 2023 recipient of the Jerome G. Rose Excellence in Teaching Award.
The award is presented annually to a full-time faculty member committed to quality teaching, outstanding commitment to student achievement, and dedication to student mentorship. Faculty and graduate students from all of the Bloustein School’s graduate programs nominate recipients.
A healthcare CFO who brings 25+ years of finance leadership and consulting experience to health systems and physician practices positioning themselves for growth, Professor Kaye’s unique ability to evaluate strategic options is based on her deep knowledge of healthcare finance and operations.
In their nomination of Professor Kaye, one student observed “Professor Kaye is more than a teacher to many students; but also a mentor and friend. She teaches many intro courses for the MHA program and fully prepares students for the rest of the program and careers ahead. She ensures students are involved, well-rounded, and educated far more than just assigning a grade. She cares about her students in a way I have not seen from many of my professors in my academic career. She offers her free time, including weekends, to teach students and help them with personal concerns. She is an expert in healthcare finance and shares real-life experiences with students to prepare us for our futures. Professor Kaye deserves to be recognized for going above and beyond for students. I wholeheartedly nominate Professor Jane Kaye for this award.”
A second student noted, “Professor Kaye is one of the first professors I’ve had during my first semester in the MHA program. I look forward to coming to class during every session and she’s very understanding of grad students. I never thought finance would be something I would ever be interested in but the way she teaches it has made me very interested in furthering my career in healthcare finance. She’s extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and already one of my favorite profs I’ve had through my undergrad and grad career at Rutgers.”
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.
