Mark McCormick has been named vice president for academic and student affairs at Middlesex County College. A distinguished educator with 28 years of experience in higher education, Dr. McCormick has served in institutions from 1,300 students to almost 30,000 in a wide range of capacities: faculty member, program coordinator, dean, as well as chief academic officer.

"I'm very pleased that Dr. McCormick has joined us as vice president," said College President Joann La Perla-Morales. "He is a tireless advocate for students and student success, and has a proven track record in developing positive change."
Dr. McCormick has extensive experience in the areas of curriculum development, assessment, accreditation, and external partnerships. In collaboration with the faculty, Dr. McCormick developed nearly 20 new programs while at Mercer and Salem. He also led the effort at both institutions to develop popular fast-track weekend programs and to increase the number of courses offered online. In addition, at Mercer he supported the development of an Honors Program, and at Salem he partnered with faculty and student services staff members to develop a more student-focused academic advisement model. He also developed career ladder programs with stackable credentials that lead from non-credit industry certifications to credit certificate and degree programs.
"I look forward to working with the faculty and staff at Middlesex County College in supporting our students in achieving their academic goals," he said.
