Strategic Planning for University and Community Partnerships
At NJIT learning does not happen just in the classroom, but through teamwork and real life experiences that make a difference in neighboring communities through service. Embedded in our 20/20 Vision are milestones experiences via experiential opportunities. Community engagement is noted as a strategic priority because NJIT recognizes that it is rooted firmly in the City of Newark and its surrounding communities. When there is engagement by the entire university network of faculty, students, staff, administration and alumni we are meeting the goals of our strategic plan. NJIT also recognizes that when we prepare our graduates not only as professionals, but also as citizens we foster a strategic culture of community service and civic engagement.
