New Jersey’s Community Colleges Invite You to Join #NJCC1st Movement
Today, Monday, March 6, New Jersey’s community colleges have launched the New Jersey’s Community Colleges 1st (#NJCC1st) social media campaign to promote community college quality and affordability in New Jersey.
Students, alumni, donors, trustees, foundation members, faculty, staff, business leaders, elected officials, and all those who have benefitted from a New Jersey community college are invited to take to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube to share their community college success stories using the #NJCC1st hashtag, or by tagging @NJCC1st in Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts.
The goal is to highlight community colleges as a worthwhile investment in the future by featuring genuine stories from those who have been positively impacted by New Jersey’s community colleges.
In addition to live social media posts, each of New Jersey’s 19 community colleges are releasing a series of testimonial videos that describes the importance of community colleges from students, alumni, faculty, staff, donors, and business leaders.
The New Jersey Council of County Colleges is the state association representing New Jersey’s 19 community colleges. As an independent, trustee-headed organization that joins the leadership of trustees and presidents, the Council is the voice of the community college sector before the state legislature and other branches of government.
