Sue Henderson has announced her resignation as President of New Jersey City University following a ten year run, effective July 1. Henderson says she “will be moving on” to her next opportunity. The University’s Board of Trustees has announced that Jason Kroll, the current Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, will succeed Henderson.
Henderson became the school’s twelfth President and first female President at the University when she was hired a decade ago. During her tenure, NJCU expanded in many ways. This expansion included the the creation of the School of Business at Harborside in Jersey City, the West Campus project, as well as the Fort Monmouth satellite campus.
Henderson is currently the chair of the governing board of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities which recognizes NJCU as a Hispanic Serving Institution.
Since she took over as President, the four-year graduation rate at NJCU has grown substantially, increasing from 7 percent in 2014 to 23 percent this year.
