Union County College is pleased to announce that Mary M. Zimmermann, former Chair of the Union County College Foundation Board and member of the College’s Board of Trustees and Board of Governors, was elected to the Executive Committee of the New Jersey Council of County Colleges on Nov. 20, 2017.

The members of the Executive Committee represent the New Jersey Council of County Colleges in meetings with the Commission on Higher Education and its staff. The Executive Committee may take action on policies and procedures previously approved by the Council and make recommendations for the annual operating and capital budgets for New Jersey’s community colleges

Mrs. Zimmermann, a resident of Summit, describes herself as a “professional volunteer.” In 2016, Mrs. Zimmermann was nominated to serve on the Association of Community College Trustees’ Diversity Committee. In addition to the time she devotes to Union County College, she also volunteers with a number of other organizations.  In 2015, Mrs. Zimmermann was the first recipient of SAGE’s Bob Abelson Carry the Torch Award, for her many years as a volunteer to the Meals on Wheels program as well as other community organizations. Mrs. Zimmermann also participates in Summit’s “Loaves and Fishes” food pantry at St. Teresa of Avila Church, sorting and bagging grocery staples for families in need.

Mrs. Zimmermann serves as one of five commissioners on the Summit Housing Authority. The SHA owns and manages 195 low-rent family, elderly and handicapped housing units. The Authority is responsible for the administrative aspects of the management, development and rehabilitation of affordable lower income housing.

“We are proud to have a member of Union’s Board of Trustees serving on the Executive Committee of the New Jersey Council of County Colleges. Mrs. Zimmermann is a zealous advocate of our College and of our students and we are fortunate to have her voice on this Committee,” stated Union President Margaret M. McMenamin.

Union County College is a public comprehensive community college providing quality, affordable, accessible educational programs that serve the greater Union County region. The first of New Jersey’s 19 Associate degree colleges, Union County College has been serving both career-minded and transfer-oriented students since 1933. The College enrolls almost 30,000 credit, non-credit and continuing education students and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Many programs lead to the Associate in Arts, Science and Applied Science degrees.
