CLOSE THE GAP CAMPAIGN
SUMMARY: In 2015, Union County College had a graduation rate of 15.7%. This graduation rate represents the highest rate in the past twenty years and three times as high as it was just ﬁve years ago. However, as every other group saw dramatic increases, the overall African American graduation rate was 8.6% and its growth was unremarkable. The difference between the graduation rates of African Americans and the general population is called the Achievement Gap. Union County College has made closing this gap an institutional priority.
The Campaign to Exponentially Increase Graduation Rates
SUMMARY: In 2015, Union County College had a graduation rate of 15.7%. This graduation rate represents the highest rate in the past twenty years and three times as high as it was just five years ago. However, this number still is below the state and national averages. Our goal is to surpass the New Jersey state average of 20% for the Class of 2016 and reach the national average of 33% in 2017.
SUMMARY: The STEM REVOLUTION Campaign was developed to help fund and support the Union County College’s STEM students and the overall division’s mission. The Foundation believes that literacy is critical to ensure that the United States is competitive in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM education allows students to gain knowledge in sequences that build upon one another, integrating this knowledge into real-world applications. At Union County College, there are a number of students interested in STEM and the numbers continue to increase every year.
