Being in partnership with NJCU allows us to access the multitude of University resources and services. It also allows Educate The Block to develop creative spaces that inspire critical and innovative thinking in our students. Located in a thriving urban environment close to the Jersey City waterfront, the NJCU campus experience provides world-class experiential learning guided by expert NJCU faculty with broad experience in their fields.

NJCU provides us an array of technology-rich resources and services in support of teaching and learning. A broad collection of online library databases, technology-enabled facilities and wireless hot spots distributed throughout the campus enhance the teaching and learning experience for the Welfare To Work Populations.
