New College Happenings
Atlantic City Program BeginsOn October 16, the School of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management opened a new facility on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City. The 12-room complex, on the top floor of the Shops at Ocean One, will serve hospitality professionals with a program of undergraduate and graduate courses. The program was developed with the full cooperation of the Atlantic City Hotel-Motel Association.
In addition to faculty and staff of the School of Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management, New College Dean Kenneth Vehrkens and Vice President for Career and Enrollment Management Gary Hamme took part in the opening ceremony.
Two buses of FDU students also attended. They spent a productive day with “behind the scenes” tours of three Atlantic City properties and applauded the new FDU facility. Harvey Weiss, hotel/restaurant/tourism management, T-H, is the coordinator of the Atlantic City program. At the time of the opening, more than 30 students had enrolled for courses.
Jewish Communal Service Specialization CommencesA master of public administration degree with a new concentration in Jewish communal service has been announced by the Public Administration Institute and the Union for Traditional Judaism’s Institute of Traditional Judaism, Teaneck, N.J. Open to anyone interested in a leadership position within the Jewish community, the program is designed to better prepare tomorrow’s rabbis and Jewish community professionals for the challenges they face in synagogues, Jewish schools, communal agencies and other Jewish organizations.
Students also may earn a certificate in Jewish studies. As many as six Union for Traditional Judaism (UTJ) credits will be recognized by Fairleigh Dickinson as part of the 39 required credits for the MPA degree. “This is truly Torah with practical skills. We are proud to offer this opportunity,” said Rabbi Ronald Price, dean of UTJ’s Institute of Traditional Judaism.
“Our innovative joint program with the UTJ will make our highly regarded
public administration degree an even more attractive option to the community
of professionals, Jewish educators and the rabbinic community who want
to enrich both their Jewish education and their management skills,” said
William Roberts, director, public administration, T-H.
