As I contemplated my first President’s Message as the 17th President of Bloomfield College, I wanted to convey how deeply humbled and honored I am to be a part of the Bloomfield College community. I know what a tremendous privilege it is to serve the College’s students and those who work most directly in impacting the lives and future of those students.
The mission of Bloomfield College is to prepare students to attain academic, personal, and professional excellence in a multicultural and global society. Fulfilling our mission on behalf of our students will always be our first priority. As President, I want you to know how important you are as well—whether you are a current student, staff member, part of our faculty, a prospective first-time or transfer student, a proud member of the alumni community, or someone who simply wants to learn more about our institution, you all have a story to write – and we are here to help you every step of the way.
I was attracted not only to Bloomfield College’s mission; its designation as a minority-serving institution (PBI and HSI) committed to providing access to an affordable education; the quality of our distinctive, nationally-ranked curriculum offerings; but also to the importance placed on inclusive excellence and preparing our community to be multiculturally-competent citizens.
We recruit, retain, and graduate students to be “workforce-ready” as well as civically-engaged, global individuals. As we work to become the leading private liberal arts college of choice in the state of New Jersey and beyond, we must foster innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship while remaining true to our history.
As you spend time researching our academic programs, championship and conference-winning Division II athletics, and co-curricular clubs and organizations, I know you will discover that many new, wonderful chapters await as you embark on your higher educational journey.
