7-7-04

 

Mark McCormick, Esq., has been named dean of the Business and Technology Division at Mercer County Community College, replacing Dr. Jacqueline B. Sanders, who served as dean for 17 years.

McCormick joined Mercer's faculty last year as coordinator of the Paralegal program, having served for ten years as coordinator of the Paralegal program at the Community College of Philadelphia, where he built the program from 40 students to more than 300. He was previously on the faculty of Peirce College of Philadelphia. An attorney licensed in Pennsylvania, he maintains a part-time law practice in probate and estate planning.

McCormick said he has been impressed by the scope of MCCC's Business and Technology Division and its dedicated and talented faculty. The division contains not only a full array of business programs, but also unusual offerings such as Funeral Service, Aviation, Hotel and Restaurant Management, and Information Technology. He plans to introduce the first online paralegal course at Mercer this fall, which will coincide with the program’s 25th anniversary celebration.

 

According to Dr. Thomas N. Wilfrid, MCCC's vice president for academic and student affairs, "Prof. McCormick offers great potential for leadership. He is deeply committed to the mission of the community college. He has an energetic demeanor, an optimistic outlook and good collegial instincts. On top of that he is very well organized."

After graduating from Davidson College in North Carolina with a degree in French, McCormick earned a Juris Doctor degree at New York University School of Law in 1984. He worked in law and banking before joining the academic world.
