In this Op Ed in the Star Ledger authored by Donna M. Chiera, president of AFT New Jersey, the parent organization of NJCU's AFT Local 1839 which represents faculty and staff, she says that while several of the state’s stronger, larger public higher education institutions are doing well, there is evidence of instability at colleges and universities all around the Garden State. Chiera writes "We know schools such as NJCU and William Paterson need more state funding. We need to invest smartly in our public colleges and universities. They should be places where faculty and staff want to work and students want to attend to get a great education, and places that make New Jersey residents proud of our many and diverse institutions of higher education. And we need to ensure that students attending our schools grow and thrive and are well-prepared for their chosen career paths."

Garrett Rasko-Martinis of The Jersey Journal previews what to expect during the 2021-22 season from the NJCU women's and men's basketball teams.

After historic season last year, what does NJCU’s women’s team do for an encore?
The NJCU’s women’s basketball team’s season last year couldn’t have gone much better, finishing 9-2 and winning the program’s first-ever conference title in its 51-year history. But head coach Pat Devaney Sr. - who has led the team’s resurgence from the winless squad he took over three years ago - knows his team missed out on playing in the NCAA Tournament for the first time ever, which was cancelled amid the pandemic. This year, the objectives are clear for him and the Gothic Knights.

NJCU’s men’s team returns most of its roster from last year’s championship squad
The NJCU men’s basketball team had a season for the ages last year. Former North Bergen High School standout Kayton Darley sealed the Gothic Knights’ first New Jersey Athletic Conference title since 2011 on a buzzer-beating three-pointer to cap off a thrilling 21-point comeback. And with most of that championship roster back this season, key players getting healthy and some exciting young talent joining the team, NJCU looks primed for a repeat with a full season of games ahead.
