Mdeway Takes Reins as RCC Continuing Education Director


Ramapo – Expanding the scope of programs on campus and engaging more young people in continuing education are among the goals envisioned by F. Christian Mdeway, who assumed the position of Director of Rockland Community College’s Continuing Education (CE) division May 1.

In addition to the career and job training CE has always offered, Mdeway is currently working to gauge Rockland County’s unique needs and to expand RCC’s offerings. He also seeks to strengthen Continuing Education’s important role as a gateway to higher education for many.

Mdeway earned an AAS in Retail Business Management from Bergen Community College in Paramus, NJ, and a BS in Management Science from Kean College in Union, NJ. After working in technology at Applied Systems Technology and IBM, he returned to Kean University for an MS in Management Information Systems.

Research Mdeway conducted while at Kean helped develop that college’s New Jersey Center for Science, Technology, Mathematics and Education, and its BA/MA and BS/MS programs. He served at Kean’s Nathan Weiss Graduate College as Managing Administrative Assistant and later Managing Assistant Director. Continuing his career at Bergen CC, Mdeway served as Managing Director of Continuing Education; Associate Dean of the Adjunct Administration; and Director for Bergen CC at the Meadowlands.

As a first-generation American, Mdeway understands the sacrifices made to carve out a new life, the importance of English language development as a key to career success, and the value of community support. “We have a very diverse group, not only culturally but educationally,” says Mdeway. “I relate to those in pursuit of lifelong learning as well as those who pursue the opportunity for a gratifying career path through all stages within education. Our hope is that they, too, will become valuable members and positive role models to the community.”
