Hudson CARE(S)

Hudson Care Logo

A caring college community is one in which students, faculty, and staff look out for each other. CARE is an acronym for “A Caring Approach to Respond and Empower.” The CARE team is prepared to respond to your concerns during this time and always.

The Hudson County Community College CARE Team strives to maintain a healthy, welcoming, and safe campus environment.  The HCCC CARE Team, in partnership with the college community, will engage in proactive approaches to address concerning behavior.
