On May 30, a new partnership between Rutgers University and Mercer County Community College (MCCC) was formalized. The partnership, a function of Rutgers Off-Campus Programs will expand opportunities for associate degree holders in the Mercer County area to earn Rutgers degrees on MCCC’s West Windsor campus.

The Memorandum of Understanding signing ceremony was hosted by MCCC President Patricia Donohue and Interim Vice President for Continuing Studies Richard Novak. The event was attended by state and county officials and MCCC and Rutgers academic administrators and staff.

“This initiative is designed to meet the needs of thousands of community college graduates who traditionally have faced great difficulty in transferring to a baccalaureate completion program. It recognizes the need for flexible options, such as online and hybrid courses, for those who have work and family obligations,” said Novak.

ENABLED to Work Program Offers Training, Job Search Skills

Alex Bruton served two years in Vietnam and 22 years as an Army reservist, but he faced one of his biggest challenges when two knee replacement surgeries left him unable to continue working on his feet as a cardiology technician.

Bruton sought help from the Veterans Administration, which referred him to the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation services (DVR). That agency connected him with the ENABLE Division of Small & Associates of Livingston and ultimately with Rutgers’ Center for Continuing Professional Development (CCPD).

Through these two educational partners in the Rutgers ENABLED to Work program, Bruton has been able to train for a new career and enhance his marketability through job counseling.

With state grant funding paying his tuition, Bruton enrolled in an online training program through Rutgers’ CCPD last summer to become an electronic medical health records specialist.  He also received counseling through ENABLE on job-search and resume-writing skills and techniques.
