Brookdale Community College and New Jersey City University (NJCU) signed the renewal lease agreement between the colleges at the January 28 meeting of the Brookdale Board of Trustees meeting.
Dr. David Stout, president of Brookdale Community College, talked about the longstanding agreements between the two colleges. “New Jersey City University is one of the premier partners we have with our university partnerships,” said Stout. He talked about the history of academic partnerships between the two higher education institutions, such as academic pathways including dual admissions and transfer agreements into a number of bachelor’s and graduate degree programs, and the physical presence of NJCU at the Brookdale at Wall location.
“I’m just thrilled to be working with you,” Dr. Sue Henderson, president of NJCU, said. “I worked at a community college for nine years of my career and really enjoyed the opportunity and the focus that community colleges provide to communities, and you have done that quite well,” she said of Brookdale.
“We would like to work with you not only with the current programs we are doing but with also the possibility of doing some 3+2 programs where students come here for three years and then do 2 years with us where they finish with a master’s degree,” said Henderson.
“We look forward to a long future relationship as well,” Stout said.
