Maureen Chelius to Add Knowledge to UCC Board

By PAUL J. PEYTON

Specially Written for The Westfield Leader and The Times

WESTFIELD – Taking the corporate world of law and applying it to the operation of the oldest county college in New Jersey, Maureen Chelius of Westfield is looking forward to her role as a new member of the Union County College (UCC) Board of Governors.

Named to a threeyear seat on the 30member UCC Board of Governors in November, she joins the body.

The board holds a joint meeting every other month with the college’s 12member Board of Trustees, the entity responsible for approving the college’s annual budget. The proposed spending plan for the 20002001 college year is $40 million. Four members of the Board of Governors also serve as Trustees.

Twentysix percent of the UCC budget comes from an allocation from the county, 26 percent from the state, 46 percent from tuition and fees and 2 percent from other revenue sources.

The college has a student body of 9,000 fulltime and parttime students.

The Boards of Trustees and Governors hold a joint meeting every other month, with the Trustees meeting separately on the months in between.

Ms. Chelius, a 19year resident of Westfield, was sworn into her seat on the board in November. In a phone interview with The Westfield Leader

and The Times of Scotch Plains and Fanwood, she described the role of Governors as “advocates of education both personally and professionally.” Board members are asked to look for areas in the college community where

they would like to contribute. Union County College, the oldest twoyear college in New Jersey, was founded in 1933. The college later merged with the Union County Technical Institute.

UCC, a member of New Jersey’ system of 19 county colleges, operates campuses in Cranford, Elizabeth, Plainfield and Scotch Plains.

The college has been actively involved in the business community. Most recently the college played a major role in the job training program at the Jersey Gardens mall in Elizabeth, the largest outlet shopping center in the state.

An attorney, Ms. Chelius is Vice President and Associate Counsel with ScheringPlough Corporation in Kenilworth.

Her responsibilities include managing the regulatory section of the ScheringPlough Law Department, providing advice primarily in food and drug law, and serving as Chief Counsel to the ScheringPlough Research Institute, the company’s research operation. She has held those posts since 1991.

Ms. Chelius also serves as a member of the corporation’s management committee where she is responsible for assuring that the division receives all necessary legal service.

The new board member is a member of the American, New Jersey and Indiana Bar Associations.

She joined ScheringPlough in 1981 from Eli Lilly in Indiana. She moved to Westfield upon accepting a post with Schering as an employment lawyer.

In terms of joining the UCC Board of Governors, Ms. Chelius commented, “Hopefully what I can bring (to the board) is experience in working for a large corporation for a number of years.” She cited her decisionmaking and legal expertise as a corporate attorney.

Ms. Chelius was recommended for a seat on the Board of Governors by ScheringPlough officials.

“I am really looking forward to it,” she said. “It (the college community) is a very dedicated group of people. I am very much looking to working with them.”

According to UCC spokeswoman Georgia Hartnett, the Governors represent a variety of backgounds including attorneys, chemists and government leaders such as state Assemblyman Alan M. Augustine of Scotch Plains.

Board of Governors’ Chairman, Richard Neblett of Plainfield, welcomed Ms. Chelius and commented in a released statement that, “The Governance structure of Union County College has always been served by the very highest caliber of dedicated individuals, and Ms. Chelius certainly fits the job description.”
