This year, we celebrate our 50th anniversary. What a milestone! As we look to the next half century of serving the youth and adults of Cumberland county, of working with our partners to advance economic opportunities and workforce development in the region, we thank all who have helped us achieve 50 years of immeasurable success. We have a great future ahead of us at Cumberland County College. We have a great legacy to be proud of. Many of our legends-our students, our faculty and staff-are still forging ahead or propelling the current and next generation of leaders forward. Our donors, supporters, current and former Board of Trustees and Foundation Board members are deeply committed to our mission and to serving our community. We look forward to 50 more years of achievements and impact on the communities we serve.
All the best,
Cumberland County College has been making history for 50 years. It was the first community college in New Jersey to open its own campus in October 1966, enrolling approximately 350 students.
Since that time, thousands of graduates have gone on to excel at four-year universities, in their chosen professions, and as civic leaders. Each year, some 70 percent of Cumberland’s graduates become the very first in their families to earn a college degree.
Cumberland County College is truly a community college. Members of the community have benefited from its services and contributed to its many successes. That’s why I am so proud to be celebrating a half century of the accomplishments and rich history that is Cumberland County College.
