Susan Krum, 2024 Rose Teaching Excellence Award Recipient

April 25, 2024

The Bloustein School is pleased to announce that Susan Krum, Au.D., interim Executive Director of Health Administration & Associate Teaching Professor is the 2024 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.

Susan Krum is an experienced healthcare leader with extensive knowledge in delivering strategic and operational change for multi-hospital healthcare systems. Dr. Krum has been instrumental as co-chair for the CAHME accreditation team by successfully securing accreditation in 2021 and 2024 for the MHA program. She teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses on Financial Management, Population Health, Healthcare Economics, and Health Systems Operations.

In their nomination of Professor Krum, one student observed “Dr. Krum fosters a supportive learning environment where students feel safe to ask questions and challenge themselves. In her finance course, she ensures comprehension by incorporating visuals into her educational materials and actively guides us through homework assignments. Additionally, she encourages students to utilize office hours for further clarification. During advisement sessions, she empowers her students.”

A second student noted, “Dr Krum is exactly the type of educator and person an administration would want supporting their program. Boots-on-the-ground knowledge, fiercely supportive of her students, mildly irreverent enough to make a class palatable for even the greenest of minds, with a dash of a motherly push. It is because of Dr Krum, and her advocacy for me, that I am graduating this semester and not in a future semester (which would have been costly for me from a financial and family perspective). I appreciate her candor, her kindness and her love of a Dunkin Donuts coffee to help her through a 3-hour evening class. She has made an impact on every student that has come in contact with her and she will always be someone I think of fondly. I wholeheartedly nominate Dr Susan Krum for the Jerome G. Rose Award for Excellence in Teaching for 2024.”

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.
