The Add/Drop period ends the evening of Wednesday, Janaury 29, 2014 (two day snow delay). I require that anybody showing up for the first time in any of my classes after that be up-to-date with respect to readings, announcements, and other assignments. In general, a student adding a class is responsible for contacting the instructor to get a syllabus and find out how to catch up. All readings, announcements, and assignments are in my Web pages, which any responsible student can find easily.

[Sep 2004 steve.jpg] Hello! My name is Steve Hartley. The little guy on the left was worried about his first day of school, September 8, 2004.
[firstDaySchool2013.jpg] I'm one of the faculty members in the Computer Science Department, having joined the Rowan University community in September 2000. I'm glad to be here! The not-so-little-anymore guy on the left no longer worries about the first day of school, September 9, 2013. Scroll to the bottom for more pictures of how gray my hair is now! Before Rowan, I was a faculty member in the Computer Science and Information Systems program at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in Pomona.

I teach these courses at Rowan.

My teaching schedule for the spring 2014 semester is

During the spring 2014 semester, my formal office hours are

If I have to go to a meeting during formal office hours, I will try, perhaps not always successfully, to remember to put a note on my office door and put the meeting in my announcements page. The department's secretary, Debi Coughlin, will usually know where I am and how to reach me.

If you need to make an appointment, or if you have a question, you can reach me by telephone at 856-256-4806 and by electronic mail at

During the 2012--13 academic year, I will serve as Chair of the Computer Science Department. I have been elected by the department to serve as Chair for a three-year term, academic years, 2010--11, 2011--12, and 2012--13. In March 2013, I was elected by the department to serve another three-year term as Chair (academic years 2013--14, 2014--15, and 2015--16).

Starting fall 2013 after a three-year gap, I will have three hours of alternative assigned time for research per semester (also called research adjusted load).
