Welcome and Welcome Back!

Welcome returning and new students, faculty and staff to the 2020 fall semester, at Rowan University.  We are starting to feel the excitement of a new academic year. Although the pulse of this semester is different from any other year, I am delighted to see the semester is underway. Some students will be on campus taking classes in-person, and others will choose to take a mixture of remote and in-person or enroll in our online courses/programs. No matter what class format students choose CHSS will welcome and support you.

We are working very hard to provide a quality and safe experience this fall for students. So please follow the necessary health and safety protocols.

Thank you and Good Luck!

Nawal H. Ammar, Ph.D.
