Margaret McMenamin is Union County College’s new president

Cranfod Chronicle
July 1, 2010
Effective today, July 1, 2010, Dr. Margaret McMenamin is Union County College’s new president. She succeeds retiring president Dr. Thomas H. Brown.

McMenamin previously served as the Executive Vice President of Educational and Student Services of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, a position she held for five years. She also served as Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs at Lehigh Carbon County Community College in Schnecksville, Pa.

While at Brookdale, McMenamin’s accomplishments included an academic restructuring, development of an academic master plan and a college-wide assessment. She also strengthened degree completion programs with four-year colleges, initiated a program to allow high school students to take college classes and helped identify and secure grant and foundation funding.

“Dr. McMenamin possesses the necessary talents and insight to lead Union County College at a challenging time, both for institutions of higher education in general and our college in particular,” said Victor M. Richel, chairman of the College’s Board of Trustees. “This is a time of expanding diversity in both the student population and in academic focus, evolving occupational demands of the community, growing competition for funding and increasing technological opportunities.”

“The students, faculty and staff of the college, as well as the communities of Union County, deserve a president who can lead in all these areas, and Dr. McMenamin is supremely qualified.”

McMenamin will oversee a college with an annual operating budget of close to $70 million. The school serves 6,300 full-time and 6,600 part-time students with a full-time faculty of 180 and an adjunct faculty of about 300. The school operates four campuses in Union County in Cranford, Elizabeth, Plainfield, and Scotch Plains. It also maintains an Associate in Science degree program with the Trinitas School of Nursing in Elizabeth, and the Muhlenberg Harold B. and Dorothy A. Snyder Schools in Plainfield.

In 2009, McMenamin gave presentations entitled, “Give students what they want: Engagement through technology” at the Conference on Information Technology in Detroit, Mich. and “Using the results of the student engagement survey to augment assessment” at the Indiana Assessment Conference in Indianapolis, Ind.

In 2008, she presented, “Exploring evidence-based outcomes through self reflection on teaching” at the Annual Conference of the Middle States Commission on Higher Education in Baltimore, Md.

She is a member of the Academic Officers Association of the NJ Council of County Colleges and the Board of Visitors of the College of Health Professions at Temple University. She also was an Adjunct Professor of Education at Rowan University in 2009.
