TRENTON, N.J. – Governor Chris Christie has nominated North Jersey FCU President/CEO Lourdes Cortez to the William Paterson University Board of Trustees. 

Founded in 1855 as Paterson City Normal School to train teachers for Paterson public schools, the university became a liberal arts school in 1967 and now serves more than 11,500 students through five colleges with more than 250 undergraduate and graduate academic programs and 400 full time faculty members.
