Student Success Initiatives

The Bergen Community College mission identifies the institution as “[a] leading community college in the nation [that] creates a stimulating, rigorous, and inclusive learning environment.”  This idea is re-enforced and expanded upon in “Framework for the Future, 2013-2018,” the college’s strategic plan in which the first strategic theme is Student Success and Excellence.  In explaining this theme, the plan notes that “cultivating student success and assuring the quality of learning remain bedrocks of the college.”  In achieving the goals set forth in the strategic plan and embodying the Characteristics of Excellence defined by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, the college’s accrediting body, Bergen Community College is continually engaged in exemplary and innovative work that supports student success.  This page highlights a number of the noteworthy efforts in which our students, faculty and staff have been actively participating.
