Two MCCC Students Make New Connections at Rutgers Leadership Program
What are the qualities of an effective leader and how does one develop leadership skills? Pam Prather, of Trenton, and Shelly Djoufack, of Princeton, both students at Mercer County Community College, were among 33 female college students from across New Jersey who recently explored these questions during NEW Leadership™ New Jersey, a residential program hosted by the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) of the Eagleton Institute at Rutgers University held June 10-15 . Prather, a 39-year-old mother of three who was born and raised in Trenton, and Djoufack, a 19-year-old international student from Cameroon who plans to become a doctor, came to the CAWP program from distinctly different backgrounds. But both say they developed a new appreciation of politicians and the political process, as well as recognition of their own potential for leadership. More here.

News from MCCC's Philosophy Department
MCCC Assistant Professor Ken Howarth delivered a paper entitled "She-Lunking Plato's Cave" in the Perennial Conversations and Questions within the Western Tradition portion of the 16th Annual Association for Core Texts and Courses international conference held in New Brunswick, NJ, on April 15. The theme of the conference was: "Engaging Worlds: Core Texts and Cultural Contexts."
Even in these tough economic times, the number of students taking philosophy courses at Mercer has risen over 30% this year. Among the reasons for this increase may be recognition that those who study philosophy tend to outperform others on graduate school entrance exams, according to MCCC Assistant Professor Ken Howarth.
