The New Jersey Council for the Humanities was honored to receive a Partnership Award from the New Jersey Council of County Colleges at NJCCC’s awards dinner held in Trenton on June 12.
The Community College Partnership Award is an honor bestowed to a New Jersey business, government agency or other entity in recognition of its significant contributions to New Jersey’s community colleges and their students.
“We at NJCH have been inspired by the humanities leadership we’ve seen at New Jersey’s community colleges and have been grateful to work in partnership with NJCCC and county colleges around the Garden State on a number of initiatives,” said NJCH executive director Carin Berkowitz, PhD. “We believe community colleges can play a vital role strengthening and expanding the humanities in our state and country.”
In its current strategic plan, NJCH identified a goal to expand partnerships with community colleges and other statewide organizations that share similar missions.
In its award presentation, NJCCC cited the Bringing Community Back to Community Colleges convening the Essential Skills Convening in 2020, and the Voices and Votes: Democracy in America exhibition tour of community colleges as key examples of NJCH’s partnership.
NJCH looks forward to continuing our partnerships with community colleges throughout the Garden State.
