New Jersey's Community Colleges
In a rapidly changing world and intensely competitive global economy, New Jersey’s community colleges are critical institutions of higher education and economic opportunity, able to reach a significant proportion of the state’s population and offer an affordable, high-quality education that serves the complex needs of students, employers, and local communities.
Many of New Jersey’s 18 community colleges were created 50 years ago, and now serve more than 170,000 people each year in credit, non-credit, and workforce development courses.
New Jersey’s community colleges are uniquely positioned to help the economy grow, industries thrive, and people succeed in an era of rapid economic, social, and technological change.
