County College of Morris (CCM) is one of only 23 community colleges nationwide to be included in the Fulbright Program Top Producers list for 2013-14. The listing recognizes institutions for their participation in the Fulbright Program’s highly competitive international educational exchanges.
Dr. Edward J. Yaw, president of CCM, was one of five community college administrators across the country awarded a Fulbright Scholar Grant to take part in the Community College Administrators Seminar in Russia this past spring. As a participant, Yaw spent two weeks meeting with higher education and other officials in Kazan and Moscow.
“It was a true honor to take part in such a prestigious program, to meet with such wonderful people and visit some extraordinary colleges and universities,” says Yaw. “I am grateful both for that opportunity and for this latest recognition which places CCM among an impressive listing of outstanding higher education institutions.”
The listing, published in the October 28 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education, http://tinyurl.com/kdafrtz

Also included on the Top Producers list are master’s and research institutions including Boston University, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Penn State, the University of University of California at Berkeley, University of Michigan and William Paterson University. CCM is the only community college in New Jersey to be included in the list.
