Together, the following groups ensure that NJCU continues to strive for excellence in its business practices and operations, and sets the stage for continued success.
The Board of Trustees, following the guidelines and policies set forth by the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education, oversees NJCU's affairs and is ultimately responsible for the University fulfilling its mission.
The Office of the President sets NJCU's agenda and drives the University forward in its mission.
