Expanding Social Services Supports for Students

Too many community colleges struggle with food insecurity, homelessness, mental health challenges and child care and these challenges limit student’s ability to stay enrolled in college and earn degrees and credentials. To address these needs, the New Jersey Council of County Colleges has partnered with state-wide organizations to support the efforts of community colleges to provide holistic student supports so that students can succeed in their studies and complete their post-secondary credentials so they can obtain jobs and careers that provide economic mobility and contribute to the state’s prosperity.
