Practice Firm Hosts Instructor Training
MCCC recently hosted a two-day training for 15 teachers who wish to implement
an International Business Practice Firm (IBPF) at their institutions.
They came from high schools and two-year colleges in N.J., Wisconsin,
Florida, and California. The IBPF program teaches through simulated business
firms that trade with other such firms throughout the U.S. and world.
MCCC students run two such firms.
Carol Weber, who has led training for the past eight years, says Mercer
is the only college site in the country providing such training. Participants
learn the pedagogy and business sides of the program -- such as marketing,
human resources and accounting.
With the assistance
of Mary McCormick, Weber also administers a network of practice firms.
For an annual fee, network members receive a variety of support services
including electronic banking, marketing, a website, videoconferencing
and special programs. The network now has about 30 members who operate
37 different practice firms.
In addition to Carol Weber and Mary McCormick, the training was facilitated
by faculty members Joan Jones, Jonathan Rowe, Herb Spiegel and Josie Mathias.
Weber said the participants "gave us high accolades."

Speaks to New Staff
In December former dean Harrison Morson came back to Mercer on Dr. Beverly
Richardson's invitation to make a presentation on customer service to
recently hired employees. He also recently attended a
Middle States Association committee meeting on institution-wide accreditation.
He was asked to co-chair a team reviewing the status of a K-12 church-affiliated
school in St. Thomas, U. S. Virgin Islands. "This experience was
a real educational adventure," he said. "All the schools on
the Virgin Islands are severely limited by the lack of financial resources
made available to them, generally as a direct result of the political
