Burlington County College (BCC) Vice President of Institutional Advancement and Executive Director of the BCC Foundation Rebecca Corbin was recently named one of the “Top 40 Women in Business” by SNJ Business People.

“Becky Corbin is an enthusiastic driving force behind the increase in funding for need-based scholarships at Burlington County College, in addition to helping create internship and mentoring opportunities for students, strengthening relationships with businesses to increase career training and encouraging us all to do more to help those who need it most,” BCC Interim President Dr. David Spang said. “She shows us what leading by example truly means. This recognition is well-deserved.”

Corbin, of Mullica Hill, has more than 15 years of leadership experience in nonprofit organizations and higher education. She has her bachelor’s degree in political science from Kent State University, an M.P.A. from the University of Akron and is currently pursuing her doctorate at Wilmington University.

“It is an honor to be recognized by the business community,” Corbin said. “However, I couldn’t do what I do without an outstanding team. I’m so proud of my colleagues at Burlington County College who help people get jobs, provide workforce training, and raise money for scholarships. On a personal level, I feel fortunate to have a wonderful husband of 17 years, Mike, and our two great kids, Chris and Rachel.

“I am grateful for all their support,” she added.

Not only does Corbin volunteer her time to help those at the college, but outside of BCC she has enjoyed supporting several initiatives, including the Alice Paul leadership development program. She also served as an Honorary Commander for the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and is currently a member of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve. Corbin serves the local business community in several capacities, including as a trustee for the Burlington County Regional Chamber of Commerce and as an active member of the Mount Laurel Rotary Club. 

“It is not every day that you come across someone so exceptionally dedicated to serving others as Becky Corbin is,” BCC Foundation Chair Barry Williams said. “She is constantly setting new goals for herself and pushing those of us around her to better ourselves by helping students, colleagues and the community. Becky always puts the needs of others first, embracing the concept of servant leadership.”

During her time leading the BCC Foundation, more than 1,500 scholarships have been awarded to students in need. Immediately prior to BCC, Corbin oversaw development and institutional advancement for the New Jersey Network. Corbin also has experience in the classroom as an adjunct instructor, teaching political science and public administration courses and is currently working on her dissertation, “Generating revenue in Southern New Jersey Community Colleges: An examination of entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and workforce development practices,” as part of her doctoral program.
