Bloomfield College President, Marcheta P. Evans, Ph.D, is characterized as a champion for career opportunities for marginalized students in an article recently published on Politico.com.
Within the 1,200-word piece, POLITICO writer Carly Sitrin details Dr. Evans’ mission to “create a ‘home’ for New Jersey’s students of color” while raising the profile of the College so that it is “on the top of everyone’s list … including employers and politicians looking to keep young talent in-state.”
Throughout the article, notable New Jersey voices praise Dr. Evans and her vision, including Secretary of Higher Education Zakiya Smith Ellis, and Reginald Lewis, Executive Director of the Newark City of Learning Collaborative.
Said Secretary Smith Ellis, "Over the past few months, we’ve partnered with (Dr. Evans) as an active member of Governor Murphy’s Student Success Working Group, created as part of the New Jersey state higher education plan, where she’s shared some of the exciting work happening at her institution and demonstrated her commitment to improving student success.”
