March 6, 2018

William Paterson University’s WP 88.7 FM was named “Best College Radio Station” (among institutions with more than 10,000 students) for the fourth time in seven years among its five first place awards and the television station WPTV-6 won three first place awards at the national Intercollegiate Broadcasting System (IBS) award ceremony this past weekend.

William Paterson Communications Professor Goes for a Gold in Researching the Role of Social Media at the 2018 Winter Olympics

March 1, 2018

What role did social media play in engaging tourists at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and what impact will their perceptions play in the future recommendations of the country as a tourist destination?  Those were among the questions that William Paterson communication professor Kyung-Hyan “Angie” Yoo explored as part of a research project that took her to South Korea during this year’s XXIII Olympic Winter Games.


Dr. Yoo, a specialist in the use of digital communication and social media, traveled to South Korea where she surveyed Korean attendees and English-speaking attendees from around the world about how they used social media channels, including official Olympic social media platforms, prior to, during, and after the Olympics.  She also explored how much social media communication influenced the visitors’ perceived image of the Olympics and the host city, their choice of event activities, accommodations, and restaurants, and their behavioral intentions – For example, would they recommend South Korea as a travel destination for family and friends.


Professor Yoo is collaborating on the project with Byung Cheol Lee, an associate professor at Kyonggi University in South Korea, and Agnis Stibe, a professor at Paris ESLSCA Business School and a postdoctoral associate at MIT Media Lab.


“Event-induced tourism has been growing fast in recent decades, and social media platforms have emerged as a dominant online marketing communication channel for mega-events such as the Olympics,” said Dr. Yoo.  “However, there is a lack of empirical data on social media use by tourists and its impact on their perceptions and decision-making.  The field is changing every moment, and this information will give both scholars and practitioners information about real-time social media use at an international sports event.”

A Conversation with NJ Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker, Chair of the Assembly Science, Innovation, and Technology Committee
February 23, 2018

The NJ Assembly Science, Innovation and Technology Committee, the Assembly’s newest standing committee, is routinely referred to as the STEM committee. Its chair – Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker (D-16) – sees the new committee as having the potential for being the root, stem and blossom for New Jersey’s future. The higher education institutions of New Jersey, according to Chair Zwicker, are key contributors of the flowering of the STEM initiatives and successful innovation projects in the state.

After the committee’s inaugural meeting in January, Assemblyman Zwicker, who is a physicist and head of science education at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), said the following:

“I want to thank everyone who testified today and offered invaluable insight into what New Jersey must do to foster innovation. Today was a great start on what I’m convinced will be exciting work by this new committee.

“Our science and innovation ecosystem is a vital source for jobs and economic development throughout New Jersey, but as we heard today, we must find ways to enable New Jersey to take advantage of its location and talent. We cannot rest on our legacy and allow other states and the rest of the world to outpace us when it comes to science, innovation and technology.

“We have to put science before politics, and make smart policy decisions to create jobs and economic development to help boost our middle-class. Read more here.

NJCU and Jersey City – Perfect Together in Ethnic Diversity and Excellence

 February 23, 2018


As reported in an NJSpotlight.com article on February 14, 2018, “New Jersey is known for a lot of things, its ethnic diversity included.  Moreover, it’s home to the most ethnically diverse city in the nation:  Jersey City.”


That’s according to WalletHub, the personal-finance website, which has just released a report analyzing more than 500 cities in the United States for their ethno-racial diversity, linguistic diversity, and birthplace diversity.


New Jersey City University (NJCU) in Jersey City has attained the same level of ethnic distinction as its host city.  US News and World Report ranks NJCU Number One among the public universities in New Jersey for ethnic diversity, as well as Number One for campus ethnic diversity for regional universities in the state.


NJCU, however, represents diversity plus – with the plus being academic excellence.  NJCU is a top producer of Fulbright Scholars.  Four of the five NJCU students and alumni who were named semi-finalists for Fulbright U.S. Student Awards for 2016-2017 have received the prestigious grants through the highly competitive program.  Read more here.

COMMENCEMENT NEWS:  Stockton’s 2018 Commencement at Boardwalk Hall will Feature Governor Phil Murphy 

February 21,2018


New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy will be the keynote speaker at Stockton University’s Spring 2018 Commencement Ceremony at 12 p.m. on May 11 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.


“We are honored that Governor Murphy has accepted our invitation to speak,” Stockton President Harvey Kesselman said.  “As we prepare to open our Atlantic City campus in fall 2018, we are thrilled that the Governor will be here to share our enthusiasm for the city and its future.”


Gov. Murphy was elected the 56th governor of New Jersey in November 2017.  Governor Murphy’s experiences mirror those faced by many young people graduating college today.  His father never graduated from high school and his mother worked as a secretary.  They inspired Governor Murphy and his three siblings to pursue their educations and be active participants in civic life.


He served as New Jersey’s representative on the board of the NAACP, and Finance Chair of the Democratic National Committee.  He has led national task forces on education.  Governor Murphy is a graduate of Harvard University and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.  After retiring from Goldman Sachs, he served as U.S. Ambassador to Germany from 2009 to 2013.


This will be the second year that Stockton University has its Commencement ceremony at Boardwalk Hall.  This year’s class includes almost 2,000 graduates and more than 10,000 people are expected to attend.

Kean University Scientist, Designers Suppoort Portable Operating Room Project

February 20, 2018

Kean University’s top academic leader and others are collaborating with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) D-Lab and Harvard Medical School to develop a backpack-sized portable operating room called SurgiBox that is designed to reduce the risk of infection for patients and medical practitioners operating in remote parts of the world. MIT D-Lab works with people around the world on practical solutions to global poverty challenges.

Kean Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Jeffrey H. Toney, PhD, was recently named to the SurgiBox Advisory Board. With a background as a chemist and in the pharmaceutical industry, he will provide regulatory guidance to the project.

“My role is to help them get SurgiBox to the next level – clinical testing – which is required for medical devices,” said Dr. Toney. “I am also always reminding them of the importance of including students, and I am looking for new and different ways that our students can contribute to their mission and process.”

Dr. Toney’s involvement in SurgiBox has already resulted in a collaboration with Efe Kutuk, an industrial design professor in Kean University’s Robert Busch School of Design, and his student Sara Camacho. They recently traveled to Boston to review SurgiBox’s prototype and recommend design improvements.

NJCU Celebrates Black History Month with Its Gil Noble Collection of Legendary Programs from WABC-TV’s Pioneering Public Affairs Series, ‘Like It Is’
February 15, 2018

New Jersey City University (NJCU) honors the memory and groundbreaking work of journalist Gil Noble during Black History Month with the announcement of plans to make accessible a collection of almost 800 interviews from “Like It Is,” WABC-TV’s Emmy Award-winning weekly public affairs series.

The longest running African-American-produced television program in the United States, WABC-TV’s weekly public affairs series “Like It Is,” gave viewers a look at local, national and international events, both current and past, from an African-American perspective. The series ran from 1967 until October 2011. Mr. Noble was named managing editor and producer of “Like It Is” in 1975. He produced and hosted the program on Sundays at noon until October 2011, when he was disabled by a stroke. Mr. Noble died on April 5, 2012 from complications caused by the stroke.

Original tapes from the “Like It Is” Collection are archived in the NJCU Lee Hagan Center for Africana Studies, located within the University’s Congressman Frank J. Guarini Library on the main campus in Jersey City. Videotapes are available for viewing on site by contacting the Hagan Center.

Mr. Noble began a close relationship with New Jersey City University in 1994, which included service as a visiting professor, a guest speaker, a moderator of debates and panel discussions, and a mentor to students. Mr. Noble also played a key role in the production of a video series for NJCU’s Human Relations Council. He was awarded an honorary doctorate by NJCU in 2003.  Read more.

Journalist Bob Woodward to Kick Off New Distinguished Lecture Series at Kean University
February 14, 2018

Bob Woodward, a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist best known for his coverage of the Watergate scandal, will speak about the importance of a free press and investigative journalism on Thursday, February 22, 2018, as part of a new distinguished lecture series at Kean University in Union.

An associate editor of The Washington Post and best-selling author, Mr. Woodward is regarded as one of the best journalists in the nation’s history and is the ideal person to launch the new lecture series, said Kean President Dawood Farahi, PhD.

“With so much economic, social and cultural change going on in our country and our world today, it is essential to engage our students and others in a dialogue about democracy,” Dr. Farahi said. “We want to bring the best minds to campus, so people can be exposed to new ideas and opinions.”

Mr. Woodward came into the national spotlight more than four decades ago when he earned his first Pulitzer Price with Carl Bernstein for their coverage of the Watergate scandal. He earned a second Pulitzer in 2002 for his coverage of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Throughout his career, he has authored 18 national best-selling books, including All the President’s Men about the Watergate break-in and cover-up. The award-winning movie of the same name is preserved in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for its cultural and historical significance.  Read more.

February 1, 2018

In a special meeting held on January 19, the Ramapo College Board of Trustees approved an amendment to President Peter P. Mercer’s Employment Agreement. The amendment extended President Mercer’s term through June 30, 2021.

Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch Speaks at Stockton University about Upholding America’s Founding Principles
January 24, 2018

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil M. Gorsuch told some 500 students and guests at Stockton University on January 23, 2018 that it is up to the younger generation to understand and continue to uphold the ideas on which America was founded.

“The Founders gave us a republic,” he said. “It is up to each generation to keep it.”

Justice Gorsuch spoke at Stockton at a special event arranged through the William J. Hughes Center for Public Policy at the University. Justice Gorsuch and William J. Hughes, Jr. attended school together in their teens in Washington, DC and have remained friends for some 40 years, despite coming from politically different families. The Hughes are Democrats and the Gorsuch family is Republican.

“We have known each other since we were 14,” Ambassador Hughes said in introducing Justice Gorsuch on behalf of the center that carries on the traditions and example of service set by Ambassador Hughes.

Stockton President Harvey Kesselman said Stockton University encourages the exchange of different points of view and aims to be a leader in civil discourse. He cited Ambassador Hughes and Justice Gorsuch as examples of how two people can be close friends despite differing political backgrounds. Read more.

Ramapo College of New Jersey will be receiving a $999,408 grant to provide recovery housing and a comprehensive program for students who are recovering from drug and/or alcohol use.

TCNJ Launches Speech Pathology and Audiology Major
January 22, 2018

The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) is launching a speech pathology and audiology undergraduate major beginning in the fall of 2018, in response to the growing global demand for speech pathologists and audiologists.

Reportedly, this need for speech pathologists and audiologists is due to increasing instances of age-related health conditions that cause speech or language impairments. In fact, the U.S. Department of Labor has stated it expects employment in these fields to grow at a pace well ahead of the average for all occupations.

The four-year program will include rigorous coursework, opportunities for field observations and internships with professionals, a selection of specializations, and classes in the areas required as a prerequisite for application to competitive graduate programs.

“In addition to preparing students for graduate education in audiology and speech-language pathology, this degree can lead to careers in a variety of other fields such as health care, education, science, and public policy,” said Suzanne McCotter, dean of TCNJ’s School of Education. Read more.
