Mission

The Center for Student Success works collaboratively with all 19 community colleges in New Jersey to increase successful experiences and outcomes for community college students.

Guiding Principles

  • Engagement and Collaboration. Successful outcomes are most likely when faculty, staff, and administrative experts are engaged and committed to the goal and when there are high levels of collaboration across colleges and areas of expertise.
  • Data-Driven Decisions. Intra- and inter-institutional data, along with national research on higher education practices, can assist colleges with making informed decisions that will positively impact student success outcomes.
  • Advocacy and Policy Development. Many student success initiatives will gain the most traction and have the greatest impact when positioned within national and statewide conversations and initiatives.
