Rowan College at Burlington County is experimenting with the creation of an honors program, offering higher-level courses that could attract top academic talent and boost students' applications when transferring to four-year colleges. The Burlington County community college will begin with four courses this fall, the first step toward creation of an honors program that could help with student recruitment during a time of change for community colleges. The courses, each with one 20-student section, will be General Chemistry I, Calculus I and Analytic Geometry, Composition II, and U.S. History I. Students with a minimum grade-point average of 3.2 can apply to take the courses, which will dive more deeply into content and be taught in more interactive ways.

Once a week for more than a decade, Robert L. Powell Jr. went to art classes at the Haddonfield Adult School. And until the last few weeks of this spring semester, he took classes in watercolor painting with Gwynn Walker Di Pilla. "A lot of his pictures were for his children and his grandchildren," Di Pilla said, including his final work, an incomplete still life of flowers for the youngest, 6-month-old Emily Ford. "I will finish it up for him," she said. Painting was a refuge from Parkinson's disease, she said, because "when he painted, he did not shake at all. " On Friday, June 19, Mr. Powell, 69, of Haddon Heights, who retired three years ago as a professor of business studies at what is now Rowan College at Gloucester County, died of complications of Parkinson's disease at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden.

Jeff Dixon is a little taller and a little stronger this season. He throws a little harder. But those aren't the real reasons that Dixon is one of South Jersey's most-improved pitchers. "It's a different feeling being a senior," Dixon said after earning the victory in perhaps the Lions' most impressive game of the season, a 14-4 triumph over second-ranked Eastern Monday afternoon. Dixon has been a solid varsity pitcher for three seasons. He was 4-3 with a 3.50 ERA as a junior.

With New Jersey continuing its notorious "brain drain" export of more than 30,000 college students every year, much of the focus in higher education in 2014 remained on expansion: breaking ground on new academic buildings, increasing housing options at the state's public colleges, and offering new ways to obtain degrees. There also were leadership changes, a new name for one community college and - of course - political battles. Here's a look back at some of the changes in the higher education landscape last year: 1.
