President's Message

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to a new academic year at Essex County College.  Each new year brings new expectations, new possibilities, new promises and a new energy to face them.

We are an integral part of the future of our students.  Each of us can remember a teacher who has had a significant impact on our lives.  Likewise, each of us has the potential to be that teacher for our students.  We are the practitioners of our disciplines. We transfer theory into practice.  Yes, we practice what we teach. 

The richness of the classroom experience is always enhanced by our willingness to learn from our students.  When they understand concepts, they see the relevance in their lives and are eager to share their knowledge.

Student success is our highest priority.  As educators, we strive to enable our students to be self-sufficient, positive contributors to our society and good citizens. 

A high priority of the Adjunct Faculty Federation is to ensure that you have the tools and support needed to deliver the best quality education to empower our students.  To that end, we want the teaching experience to be productive and pleasant.

Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns you may have.  We are members of an outstanding team that values your work and dedication.

Mark Brodsky, Secretary/Treasurer, (201)341-8811

We will do all we can to help you have a most fulfilling and dynamic experience here at Essex County College.

In unity,


Lynne Peterson Cummins
