Dear Members of the NJCU Community:

NJCU is aware of the Governor's request to the Comptroller and we welcome any additional review of the university's financial situation as we work collaboratively with our partners in government, labor and our student, faculty and staff community to move our institution onto solid ground and set it on a path to future sustainability. We believe deeply in transparency and openness.

NJCU provides educational and economic opportunities to a vulnerable population that would not be likely to receive them anywhere else, and for that reason we all must recognize how essential it is for the university to continue on as a beacon of hope and progress for our state.
