At the agreement-signing ceremony with Fairleigh Dickinson University are, seated, from left, MCCC President Robert Rose and FDU President J. Michael Adams. Standing, from left, are MCCC’s Vice President Thomas Wilfrid, Transfer Counselor Laurene Jones, Dean Diane Campbell, and faculty coordinator of hospitality programs Douglas Fee, with FDU’s Director of Community College Partnerships Anthony Mastropietro, Campus Coordinator Harvey Weiss, Dean Kenneth Vehrkens and MCCC faculty member Chris dePagnier.

Area students will now be able to begin their studies in business or hospitality at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) and complete their bachelor's degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University (FDU) without leaving the Mercer campus. Those in hospitality studies can also take graduate courses at Mercer leading to a master’s degree.

Dr. J. Michael Adams, president of FDU, and Dr. Robert Rose, president of MCCC, signed a partnership agreement on May 3 that will bring FDU faculty members to the community college beginning this fall.

The two bachelor's degree tracks are "Business and Technology" and "Hospitality Management." The Master of Science degree will be in "Hospitality Management Studies." The programs will offer flexibility so students can tailor their studies to specific career goals. Classes will be offered in the evening and on Saturdays to accommodate part-time as well as full-time students. The FDU courses at Mercer will be offered at a rate discounted from the FDU on-campus per-credit rate.

"I’m delighted to bring a four-year college directly to our campus," Rose said. "This is yet another expansion of the many dual admissions and transfer opportunities we offer to Mercer County students. It's close to home and convenient."
