Dr. Joseph R. Marbach, Ph.D., President of Georgian Court University, has been named one of the 2022 NJBIZ Education Power 50, coming in at No. 10!
Through this accolade, NJBIZ recognized educators and administrators who have persevered through interruptions in education due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, NJBIZ acknowledged those who have strived “to redress historical inequities and meet the needs of the state’s important economic actors.”
NJBIZ recognized President Marbach for GCU’s trailblazing decision to become the first institution of higher education in the state to offer employees a four-day compressed workweek option year-round. President Marbach was also chosen for guiding GCU in our historic land deal with Beth Medrash Govoha Lakewood yeshiva, “strengthening the relationship between the schools, which share a commitment to serving the Lakewood community.”
NJBIZ further lauded GCU’s forward focus on creating programs to meet growing market and industry demands. President Marbach was recognized for his oversight of the launch of a 24-month Direct-Entry Master of Nursing program through the Hackensack Meridian Health School of Nursing and Wellness at GCU, the only such program in the state.
Having been named one of the Top 25 Most Influential University Presidents in 2022 by ROI-NJ in August, the distinction is another significant milestone for GCU’s president. We are so proud of President Marbach for being recognized among other individuals who are leading New Jersey toward an informed and innovative future in education that will meet the changing needs of our state.
