SNJ Today – A new partnership at a South Jersey community college will expand student education opportunities while also boosting the local workforce.

On Tuesday, March 27th, Rowan College at Gloucester County, Rowan University, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders introduced the new Rowan Work and Learn Consortium.

Officials say this unique approach to higher education will address college affordability for students while meeting employment demands within the local job market.

“This is something that we envisioned, people were saying it’s not done that way we’ve never seen it like this and now it’s here, and it’s going to work and it’s going to improve the quality of life for people, get people more opportunities for employment which for me is what it’s all about, jobs,” said State Senator Stephen Sweeney.

The new Rowan Work and Learn Consortium partnership will bring together vocational schools, county colleges, four-year universities and local business partners in a variety of industries to produce graduates ready to be hired within high demand positions.
