"Our adoption of the Starfish platform has furthered our commitment to student success and we enjoyed an extremely successful first-year implementation... [The Starfish platform] has created an additional layer of support and communication that enables us to remain student-centered and let students know, in real time, that we care deeply about their success."

He has authored, co-authored and edited two books, numerous articles, book chapters and reviews. His recent publications have focused on the legal profession and professional standards as well as the unique features of higher education administration. He earned his LLM and PhD from the University of Cambridge, and a JD from the University of Western Ontario. For sixteen years, he has also served as principal instructor in the Senior University Administrators Course held at the Banff Center, Banff Alberta each June and he is a member of the faculty of the Harvard University Seminar for New Presidents held every July. Dr. Mercer is also immediate past chair of the New Jersey Association of State Colleges and Universities Presidents' Council. Under his leadership, the NJASCU launched the New Jersey College Promise Action Network, a resource which linked over 9,000 people who care about the nine state colleges and universities with those in a position to make these institutions a higher priority -- including the New Jersey Governor and Legislature. He is also a member of the Executive Committee of the New Jersey Presidents' Council. Nationally, Dr. Mercer is the American Association of Colleges and Universities representative to the Advisory Board of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges. In addition to the higher education sector, Dr. Mercer's service also includes membership on the Board of Directors of the Commerce and Industry Assoication of New Jersey and the Meadowlands Regional Chamber of Commerce. During Dr. Mercer's time at Ramapo College, the college has been increasingly regarded as a great value and a superior institution. Ramapo College has been ranked by U.S. News and World Report as among the "Best Regional Universities in the North," by Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine as a member of its "The Best Northeastern Colleges" list. During the same period, Ramapo College has also benefitted from implementing sound financial practices yielding a bond rating from Standard & Poor's that was recently raised from A- to A stable. In addition, the college's comprehensive capital campaign, "Further Our Promise," surpassed its $40 million goal nearly 18 months ahead of schedule. Over the past several years, Dr. Mercer has led Ramapo College through an ambitious and transformative campus-wide building program that has resulted in the completion of the Anisfield School of Business, the Bill Bradley Sports and Recreation Center, the Overlook and Laurel residence halls, the Sharp Sustainability Education Center, and the Salameno Spirituality Center.
