November 15, 2012
Dr. Peter L. Mora, president of Atlantic Cape Community College, was recently elected chairperson of the New Jersey Community College Presidents group for the 2012-2013 academic year. In that capacity he will also serve on the New Jersey Council of County Colleges’ Executive Committee. He will be sworn in at the council’s Nov. 26 meeting.
As a part of the seven-member Executive Committee, which includes four community college trustees and three community college presidents, Dr. Mora, of Palermo, will help shape statewide community college policies and projects, including the implementation of the Big Ideas Project, the collective effort of all 19 community colleges to improve student success.
The Executive Committee is the leadership team of the New Jersey Council of County Colleges. The Chairman of the Executive Committee, and Chairman of the NJCCC, is Bakari Lee, Esq., a trustee from Hudson County Community College.
The NJCCC is the state association representing New Jersey’s community colleges. As an independent, trustee-headed organization that joins the leadership of trustees and presidents, the council is the voice of the community college sector before the state legislature and other branches of government. The council is also the state coordinating organization for all community colleges in New Jersey.
