Brookdale students and faculty networked with some of the top minds in higher education this spring during annual meetings for the New Jersey Collegiate Business Administration Association (NJCBAA) and the American Association of University Women (AAUW) of New Jersey

On April 28, Brookdale students Ronald Croce, Matthew T. Doucette and Jenna Knapp were officially welcomed into the NJCBAA during the organization’s annual induction ceremony at the State House in Trenton. The organization, which admits only the top 1 percent of undergraduate students pursuing associate degrees in business, is considered one of the most prestigious honor societies in New Jersey. 

Also in attendance at the ceremony were business management professors Barbara Boyington and Phyllis Shafer, fashion merchandising and marketing instructor Annmarie Hughes and associate economics professor Sarah Leahy.

On May 1, members of Brookdale’s Women in Engineering, Science and Technology (WEST) club joined faculty advisor and assistant mathematics professor Susan Monroe at the AAUW-NJ annual meeting in Atlantic City.

Club members Medina Demira, Samantha Moss and Laura Sanchez participated in a college roundtable with students from Rutgers, Georgian Court, Stockton and Monmouth universities to discuss new ways in which the AAUW can help support female college students. 

In June, Brookdale WEST member Emily Fluck will travel to Maryland to attend this year’s National Conference for College Women Student Learners as part of a contingent of students sponsored by the Northern Monmouth branch of the AAUW.
