  • Montclair State University was proud to host the launch of The New Jersey STEM Innovation Fellowship Summer Institute today. The new teacher-leadership program was developed by Math for America, with feedback and support from key stakeholders, including the Murphy Administration, the New Jersey Department of Education and JerseyCAN (an advocacy group that supports equitable access to STEM education for students). Faculty and staff from Montclair State's Professional Resources in Science and Mathematics program are leading the initiative -- a partnership with Princeton University and Rowan University -- to power statewide innovation in STEM education from the ground up.

    The Institute kicked off with an Introduction to "Number Strings," taught by Cathy Fosnot, a leading voice in mathematics education. Following the lesson, University President Susan A. Cole and New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, offered remarks, stressing the critical importance of STEM education to NJ and the nation, and acknowledged the fellows for being "the front line" of creating equal opportunities for all children and instilling the love of STEM learning in their students.

  • Jack Barteck will be entering his sophomore year as a Television and Digital Media major at Montclair State University. “So far, my experience at MSU has been everything I could've asked for,” he says. “The campus is beautiful, the people are great and there are many opportunities to get involved.”

    Barteck hosts a radio show on the University’s WMSC 90.3 FM and is a voice for play-by-play and color commentary for Montclair State Red Hawk Athletics.

    “As for my major, it really is the best of the best,” says Barteck, who grew up in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey. “Not only have I been able to work with great professors who have hands-on experience in the field, but also with the state-of-the-art technology in the new communications building. I could not be happier with my choice of Montclair State.”

  • Caprice Kennedy (pictured) was "crushed" when she didn't get into the dance program at Montclair State. She still trains in dance, but she met with an advisor to find a new academic direction.

    To get undecided students like Kennedy on track, Montclair State invests in vigorous advising. The ratio of advisers to undecided students, which constitute about a third of Montclair State’s freshmen, is 1 to 275, says David Hood, associate provost for undergraduate education and dean of University College, while in other programs that ratio ranges from 1 to 600 to 1 to 1,000.

    Montclair State started the University College model in 2018, Hood says, because second-year retention rates are worse for students who haven’t found their academic focus.

  • Shantelle Jones ’19, a resident of East Orange, New Jersey, graduated from Montclair State University with a degree in Communication Studies.

    Authentic, courageous and determined, her passions include dancing, modeling, acting, styling and creative directing. During her freshman year of college in 2013, she founded the “MSU Complexions Band Dance Team” to create a space for female empowerment, healthy self-esteem, and growth of the mind and body.

    A truck accident and personal setbacks led Jones to take a break from college. Once healed, the Montclair State University EOF Program scholar returned “mentally, emotionally and physically stronger.” During her final year, she worked as an organizational and marketing manager intern at a boutique in Montclair, New Jersey, and won modeling titles.

    “You must fail your way to success,” she says. “Don’t let fear be the reason you miss out on opportunities in life that will transform you. Dream big! Reach for your goals, make mistakes and repeat. Living life truly begins only at the death of fear.”

  • This summer, #Newark middle school students spent their days in #STEM activities at Montclair State as part of its Passaic Basin Eco-Explorers Program.

    Run by the University’s Passaic River Institute, the students visited nature sites related to the river, the region’s ecology and environmental infrastructure. They conducted field studies in local forests, streams and lakes and did a river clean-up service project. The program also educated students on the benefits, threats, opportunities and obstacles specifically related to their lives in Newark.

    “We hope to increase students’ interest in the feasibility of attending college and pursuing a career in science by introducing them to a university environment, where they can interact with college students and professors who are role models,” says Wu.

    Substantial financial support from the Victoria Foundation and Landsberger Foundation made it possible to expand this year's Passaic River Institute Eco-Explorers at Montclair State University

  • Montclair State Research Development Specialist Dana Natale believes that grant writing skills are becoming an increasingly important part of every student’s tool kit. A recent grant writing course, taught in collaboration with the University’s Center for Community Engagement, resulted in a real-life program that delivers fresh, organic produce at a fraction of supermarket prices to local seniors and low-income communities.

    One of the primary goals of the Center for Community Engagement is to help students connect classroom content with real community issues and build civic awareness, with the hope that they will make a positive contribution to the organizations and communities they are involved with. This project allowed the students to see the fruits (and vegetables) of their service immediately.
