The Top 12 most influential people in higher education


There are 74 institutions of higher education in New Jersey.

Each year, ROI-NJ lists the presidents, deans and directors who have greatest influence and impact at their schools — and within the business community.

This year, as an added bonus, we’ve added a list of 10 schools with creative, innovative and impactful entrepreneur programs.

And since we know the building boom in higher education never stops, we’ve added a list of 10 new buildings with a “wow” factor.

Finally, since so many of us are wondering how much college has changed since we attended: We have a list of 15 unique and unusual classes, programs and degrees — all of which show that higher education definitely is teaching what is new and what is coming.
