The New Jersey Council of County Colleges (NJCCC) has announced the launch of a new website at njcommunitycolleges.org, as a centralized, more organized, cohesive place for community college information, initiatives, and resources.

The new site will be an important resource for community colleges, partners, students, and businesses.

The new website combines njccc.org and njworkforce.org, the former website of the Council’s Community College Consortium for Workforce and Economic Development, into a single online presence.

Governed by the presidents and trustees of the state’s 18 community colleges and enshrined in state law, the New Jersey Council of County Colleges (NJCCC) supports New Jersey’s community colleges and the more than 230,000 students they serve annually across 49 locations by fostering collaboration and developing solutions that expand access to college, promote equity and student success, and create a skilled workforce to drive economic growth.

The new website will better support the Council’s efforts by providing information in a more streamlined and efficient manner to all audiences.  This new virtual presence mirrors the growth and rapidly changing landscape of New Jersey’s 18 Community Colleges to meet the demands of students and employers.

The website serves as the single place for information and resources relating to the Council, its committees, and core function and the work of the Council’s New Jersey Community College Consortium for Workforce and Economic Development. The website provides information on events, leadership, staff, news, and press releases in this newly branded platform.

The website also highlights the Council and Consortium’s priority initiatives, including New Jersey Pathways to Career Opportunities, that is aligning education with the needs of the economy, and initiatives to expand access to basic need supports for community college students, to support the expansion of apprenticeship programs, to assist adult learners, to assist more high school students to prepare for college, and to strengthen essential skills through the humanities.

The website also includes a first look at the Community Colleges’ call to action and partnership entitled, “New Jersey’s Opportunity Agenda: Building Pathways to Equity and Economic Prosperity”. This agenda, developed by the Council and the 18 community colleges, is a shared commitment to action and novel policies and innovations that can help New Jersey adapt and thrive in this moment of complex and rapid change.

The website also serves to connect interested students to the community college serving their county and connects businesses to an array of programs and services. An interactive map on our new platform quickly connects students and businesses to the college community of their choice. Online forms allow organizations to partner with New Jersey’s Community Colleges, businesses to get involved, or questions to be answered.
