Message from the President

President Sue Henderson

Welcome to New Jersey City University. As president of this great institution, it has been my tremendous privilege to witness, every day, the transformational effects that knowledge can provide—on our students, our community, our state, and our world.

NJCU proudly boasts one of the most diverse student populations in the nation. With more than 60 different ethnicities represented, and more than 30 languages spoken on campus, every day is a cultural experience at NJCU, and the University hosts a broad range of activities and events designed to foster cultural sensitivity and understanding—one of the most important lessons we can impart on today's students and tomorrow's leaders.

NJCU is a place where students explore fundamental questions of meaning, pursue innovative achievement, and launch successful careers. NJCU joins in common service toward the betterment of society, and I personally welcome you to explore all that NJCU has to offer.

Warm regards,

Sue Henderson, Ph.D.
