Dr. Maureen Murphy PhD
For the third time in seven years, Brookdale Community College is looking for a new president.
Dr. Maureen Murphy resigned today, effective June 30. She will become president of College of Southern Maryland effective July 1.
Murphy took the helm of Brookdale in 2012 when she replaced interim President William M. Toms. Toms led the college after Peter Burnham, who had been president for about 20 years, resigned in March of 2011 due a scandal over his padding his expense reports and a student loan for his son.
In 2015, Murphy was a finalist for the presidency of Blinn College’s Bryan, Texas campus.
Murphy said she took the College of Southern Maryland job “for personal reasons,” according to The Asbury Park Press. She has changed jobs every 4-5 years since 1999, according to her LinkedIn profile.
