Our Communities

Enriching the lives of those in our neighboring communities has always been a priority for NJCU. We’re not only expanding our partnerships with community colleges and bachelor's degree options across the state, we’re broadening our offering of Division 3 varsity sports programs. All of which will give students, student-athletes and entire communities something to cheer about.

We have game-changing initiatives for New Jersey in full swing. Whether creating a home for the arts, bringing science programs to middle- and high-school students or providing professional development and continuing education for adults, we seek to improve the lives of everyone in the Garden State.
