DOBBS FERRY, N.Y. -- Bruce Haber has been elected the new chairman of the board of trustees for Mercy College

Brown said he was pleased to have someone like Haber succeed him on the board.
"Bruce has made enormous contributions to Mercy College since he joined the board nine years ago." said Brown. "Bruce brings extensive expertise to the table, as well as a passion for advancing student success through education."
