As part of a broader effort to engage more low-wage working adults in postsecondary education at community colleges, the Council has begun a collaboration with several large health care employers—RWJ Barnabas Health, Hackensack Meridian Health, and Cooper University Health Care—to promote access to CCOG.  This effort is one of the significant initiatives that have emerged from the NJ Pathways initiative.
