Currently serving as provost at the Katharine Gibbs School in Manhattan, Dr. Generals served three years as vice president for Academic and Student Affairs at SUNY Rockland Community College. He has 16 years of administrative experience at Passaic County Community College, where he served as dean of Student and Cultural Affairs, director of Academic Skills Resource Center and Testing, and director of Project REACH Literacy Center.

"Dr. Generals is a vibrant and experienced leader," said MCCC President Patricia C. Donohue. "We are delighted that he will be joining us, and we will tap into his expertise in many areas, particularly in urban education as we continue to seek ways to provide college access for all populations in our county." Dr. Generals has served on the Paterson Board of Education and operated outreach programs for urban children and teens.

Dr. Generals said he accepted his position at Mercer because of the college's reputation as a dynamic institution. "I am from New Jersey and quite familiar with MCCC and its history," he said. "I think the college's future is quite bright and I really look forward to being part of it."

Dr. Generals earned his Ed.D. in Social and Philosophical Foundations of Education at Rutgers University. He earned his B.A. in Political Science and his M.A. in Urban Education/Community Service at William Paterson College, and certificates in administrative leadership and educational management at Cornell and Harvard universities. He has published many articles and speaks nationally.
