BERKELEY COLLEGE HONORS MARY MCDONOUGH
WITH ONLINE FACULTY OF THE YEAR AWARD
Berkeley College recently honored Mary McDonough, PhD, by presenting her with the Online Faculty of the Year Award for Outstanding Teaching. The Award recognizes a faculty member who is a role model in demonstrating commitment to the success of Berkeley students. Dr. McDonough, Management, Online, joined Berkeley College in 2000 as a Professor of Management. She has also taught on-site classes and served as Campus Operating Officer of the Westchester Campus in White Plains.
“One of the finest compliments that students can give a faculty member is that a course was extremely challenging, yet enjoyable and rewarding. That’s how students describe Dr. McDonough’s courses,” says Berkeley College Interim Online Dean Beth Coyle. “Students tell us that Dr. McDonough is ‘patient and understanding, and is quick to offer help wherever and whenever needed.’ This is important in all classes, but particularly for online students, who appreciate that sense of connection with their professor.”
Dr. McDonough’s former teaching posts include Adjunct Professor in the Master of Arts in Strategic Communication and Leadership (MASCL) Program at Seton Hall University in West Orange, NJ; Assistant Professor of Management in the graduate and undergraduate programs at the College of Saint Elizabeth in Morristown, NJ; and Adjunct Professor of Management, graduate program at Upper Iowa University, Des Moines, IA. Her professional experience includes a Consultant at Small Business Consulting, Broward County FL; an Internal Consultant at the Department of Human Services, Des Moines, IA; and a Transportation Manager, Operations Manager, and Supervisor, Human Resources in Saddle Brook, NJ.
Dr. McDonough holds a BS degree in Political Science from Ramapo College, Mahwah, NJ; an MS degree in Human Resource Management from Upsala College, East Orange, NJ; and a PhD in Human Resource Development from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE.
