Undergraduate research, unique student-faculty collaboration and the creation of new programs to meet marketplace demands, especially in health care, will play an important role at Georgian Court University, President Joseph R. Marbach said during a recent interview with SCAN-TV.
“We are relatively new to the health care field, and we are looking at new programs that meet the needs of those in our community,” he told Len Kiczek, host of the Social Community Activities Network’s (SCAN) cable TV show.
“Our partners at Meridian Health have at the forefront of working with their nurses and other healthcare professionals to ensure that we get the right amount of care to people in the right way, and as efficient a way as possible, and often that’s in an individual’s home,” Dr. Marbach explained, noting the emergence of occupations like healthcare navigator.
Dr. Marbach joined Mr. Kiczek for a wide-ranging conversation on everything from Georgian Court’s enrollment plans and future academic programs to the university’s mission and values, as shaped by Catherine McAuley, founder of GCU’s sponsoring order, the Sisters of Mercy. The president’s academic expertise on federalism, his experience as a scholar/author, and his passion New Jersey politics were also topics for discussion.
