Merodie A. Hancock Selected as President of Thomas Edison State University
Merodie A. Hancock, PhD, was unanimously elected the fourth president of Thomas Edison State University. She will take office on March 5, 2018.
Merodie A. Hancock, PhD, was unanimously elected the fourth president of Thomas Edison State University by the institution’s Board of Trustees at a special board meeting today. She will take office on March 5, 2018.

“Thomas Edison State University is such a respected pillar among adult-serving institutions in the United States and has been at the forefront of offering degree pathways for busy, working adults since its inception in 1972,” said Hancock, who currently serves as president of SUNY Empire State College in New York. “I hold dear this mission, and am honored to take on the presidency of such a pivotal university.”

University Board Chair Brian T. Maloney said Hancock’s record of accomplishment and commitment to innovation and excellence made her an ideal choice to lead Thomas Edison State University.

“We are honored and excited to have Dr. Hancock as our new president. She has the experience, expertise, and vision to lead Thomas Edison in today’s challenging marketplace,” said Maloney, who chaired the university’s presidential search committee. “Dr. Hancock has dedicated her distinguished career to expanding access to higher education for adults, including active military service members and veterans, and is a national leader in meeting the unique needs of nontraditional students.”

Hancock has served as president of SUNY Empire State College since 2013. She is responsible for the overall operation of the institution’s 35 locations throughout New York, the worldwide Center for Distance Learning and eight international sites and oversees the teaching and learning of the college’s 20,000 students, as well as the employment of 1,700 faculty and staff and active engagement with 70,000 alumni.

Prior to joining SUNY Empire State College, Hancock served as vice president at Central Michigan University Global Campus where she was responsible for delivering academic programs at the university’s remote campuses, military, and community college locations and online programs. During her tenure at Central Michigan, Hancock served on several strategic committees and oversaw tuition pricing and discounting strategies, compliance with accreditation and licensure regulations, partnerships with community colleges and increased diversity recruitment. She has also held teaching and administrative leadership positions at the University of Maryland University College and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Dr. George A. Pruitt, who will officially leave office after serving as Thomas Edison’s president for 35 years, praised the board’s selection for the institution’s new president.

TY! I got Excelsior and ESC confused in regard to the Presidents! I agree! ESC is an awesome option! It is still part of the state uni system (which EC used to be.) It's also looking like a better option for my kid too as they will accept more of the credits already completed including a couple D's that were taken as part of an associate degree program at a local CC college that is part of the state uni system, while EC refuses to accept 15 credits which puts ESC in the lead both on tuition and fees and credits needed to complete. 

TY!
