Former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey, executive director of the Jersey City Employment and Training Program and chairman of the NJ Reentry Corporation, will discuss New Jersey prison reentry efforts during a lecture at Mercer County Community College Nov. 21.

WEST WINDSOR – Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey, executive director of the Jersey City Employment and Training Program, will address the importance and success of prison reentry efforts during a lecture at Mercer County Community College (MCCC).

“New Jersey Reentry” will be the subject of McGreevey’s lecture at noon on Tuesday, Nov. 21 in the Communications Building, Room 109. His talk is part of MCCC’s fall 2017 Distinguished Lecture Series at the West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The lecture is free and open to the public.

McGreevey, who also serves as chairman of the New Jersey Reentry Corporation (NJRC), will stress the need – and importance – of providing support services to formerly incarcerated individuals, with the goal of successfully integrating them into society. NJRC provides addiction treatment, sober housing, employment and training, and linkages to healthcare at five sites throughout the state. Clients of NJRC have a recidivism rate of less than 20 percent, with an employment rate of 62 percent.

McGreevey has served as New Jersey’s governor, state senator, state assemblyman, and as mayor of Woodbridge. Other public service includes positions on the New Jersey Parole Board and as assistant prosecutor in Middlesex County.

McGreevey received his bachelor’s degree from Columbia College of Columbia University, with a law degree from Georgetown University. He holds a master’s of education degree from Harvard University, and a master’s of divinity from the General Theological Seminary in New York City.
