Hudson County Community College (HCCC) is an award-winning, comprehensive urban college
serving one of the most historic and ethnically diverse areas of the United States.
HCCC students were born in 119 countries and speak 29 different languages. The diversity
and the multitude of our community’s cultures, life experiences, skills and aspirations,
are the very values and traits that empower us to be productive and caring members
of our society.
HCCC embodies an unwavering commitment to student success and an intentional focus
on diversity, equity, and inclusion. In 2019, the President’s Advisory Council on
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (PACDEI) was instituted to develop new levels of understanding
and access and advance the College’s commitment to transparency and inclusion. We
are proud of the differences we share, which are the foundation for the life changing
and transformational education we offer and the social mobility we provide to the
communities we serve.
HCCC has three campuses located just minutes from Manhattan: the Journal Square campus
in Jersey City and North Hudson Campus in Union City are adjacent to vital transportation
hubs; the Secaucus campus has abundant parking. Fully accredited by the Middle States
Commission on Higher Education, the College offers courses and classes in a wide variety
of disciplines to the people and businesses of Hudson County, one of the most ethnically
diverse areas of the United States. The College was recognized with the 2012 Association
of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Northeast Regional Equity Award, was one of just
five finalists in the U.S. for the American Association of Community Colleges’ (AACC)
Student Success Award, and was presented with the New Jersey Business & Industry Association’s
Good Neighbor Awards in 2009 for the Culinary Conference Center, in 2012 for the North
Hudson Campus, and in 2015 for the award-winning Gabert Library. In 2016 the Gabert
Library was one of three academic libraries in the United States to receive the Excellence
