Faculty-Graduate

Faculty are divided into two categories: Core and Graduate Faculty. Core faculty are central to the department. They teach and advise both undergraduate and graduate students. Graduate faculty may be based out of another department at Rutgers. They advise graduate students only. Graduate faculty include the core faculty.
