NJIT Appoints Morris Plains Man Director of Admissions

Stephen M. Eck, of Morris Plains, has been appointed director of admissions, announced Joel S. Bloom, EdD, vice president of academic and student services and dean of the Albert Dorman Honors College.

“Steve has excelled in all of his past endeavors, and we anticipate that he will continue to do so in his new position,” said Bloom.

Eck began his career at NJIT in 1988, moving up from his first job as admissions counselor to his most recent position as director of graduate admissions.  Among Eck’s accomplishments in this last position were increasing the number of students in the bachelor’s and master’s degree programs from 60 to 300. Eck also developed and implemented a merit-based fellowship sponsored by the provost with financial support.  Eck developed web-based systems to make it easier for graduate students to seek admission.

Eck graduated from Gettysburg College with a BA in history. He received an MS in management and a graduate certificate in electronic commerce, both from NJIT. He is a vice president of the New Jersey chapter of the National Association of Graduate Admissions Professionals (NAGAP).
