New Jersey City University (NJCU) is an accredited institution providing a diverse population of learners with an excellent education. The University is committed to the improvement of the educational, intellectual, cultural, socioeconomic, and physical environment of the surrounding urban region and beyond. Established in 1927 as a training school for teachers, today NJCU is among the most comprehensive universities in the state.  Located in Jersey City, NJ, one of the most diverse cities in the nation, and just minutes from New York City, NJCU's College of Arts and Sciences, Education, Professional Studies, and School of Business offer 44 undergraduate degree programs and 29 master’s programs and 3 doctoral programs, including emerging and interdisciplinary fields.

NJCU students engage in rigorous applied-learning experiences that include opportunities to study abroad, and cooperative education internships.  NJCU operates two additional campus sites—NJCU School of Business at Harborside Plaza 2 in Jersey City’s financial district and NJCU at Brookdale in Wall Township in Monmouth County.  In addition, NJCU will soon open a campus location in Fort Monmouth, NJ.


As the newly appointed president of this outstanding public university, I am delighted to welcome you to NJCU and invite you to join me in becoming a part of our community. This institution has been a center of learning and educational opportunity in New Jersey for more than eight decades.
