Weinberg Statement On Passing Of J. Michael Adams

TRENTON – Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg, D-Bergen, issued the following statement today regarding the passing of Dr. J. Michael Adams, president of Farleigh Dickinson University (FDU):

“Dr. Adams was that rare breed of higher education administrator who returned every phone call and responded to every note in person. His dedication to the students, faculty and staff at FDU was remarkable, but his ability to make a personal connection, while at the same time staying true to his vision of global education, was what defined him as an educator.

“The contributions that Dr. Adams made to the FDU community and to the larger picture of global education will be his legacy. This is a tremendous loss for New Jersey’s higher education system, but the work that he’s done to advance higher education in New Jersey and beyond will be remembered for many years to come.

“My condolences to Dr. Adams’ family and to the FDU family.”
