Miriam L. Frolow, PhD has a strong commitment to academic excellence, as well as student and faculty success. She is the Director of Academic Affairs for the Jersey City Campus, where she provides academic leadership to the faculty and staff, and oversees the academic programs offered at the campus and in the New Jersey Market. Dr. Frolow teaches the undergraduate Leadership, Marketing Research and Business Research classes at the Jersey City Campus. Her Marketing Research (MKT/441) classes include a service-learning component, enabling the students to create marketing research plans for local nonprofit organizations and new start-up businesses. She recently developed a case study for her Innovative Leadership (LDR/300) class that focused on crisis communication and leadership with a UOPX alum who leads the Emergency Management Services (EMS) department for a major hospital system near the campus. Dr. Frolow also serves as a dissertation chair and committee member in the PhD/Higher Education Administration program and the EdD/Educational Leadership program in the School of Advanced Studies.
Dr. Frolow created a monthly Research Club at the Jersey City Campus for doctoral candidates, alumni, and faculty who want to discuss and engage in research and scholarly activities. Now a year old, the Research Club has become a valuable resource for doctoral candidates in the New Jersey/New York Market. Doctoral candidates come to the campus to receive one-on-one guidance/tutoring from Dr. Frolow, a University Research Methodologist, several faculty members, and UOPX doctoral alumni on their dissertations. They also spend time supporting each other and building a local network.
Prior to the University of Phoenix, Dr. Frolow worked at Seton Hall University in New Jersey in various positions. Her last position was serving as the Executive Director of Online Education for the College of Arts and Sciences. As the Assistant Dean for Special Projects in the College of Arts and Sciences, she worked with interdisciplinary teams of faculty to develop and launch one doctoral degree, two master’s degrees, and three bachelor’s degree programs. Her teaching experience has included a Directed Research/Research Methods course in the EdD Education Leadership (Higher Education) Program at Saint Peter’s University and Nonprofit Management courses in the Master of Public Administration (MPA) program at Seton Hall University. Dr. Frolow earned her PhD in Higher Education Leadership, Management and Policy from Seton Hall University. Her dissertation focused on the “Determinants of a Professor's Decision to Include Service-Learning in an Academic Course,” which she then presented at two international conferences.
