 Recently, Hudson County Community College (HCCC) students and staff provided Hudson County Executive Thomas A. DeGise with a tour of the recently completed Student Center at 81 Sip Avenue in Jersey City.
 
HCCC President Dr. Chris Reber and Mr. DeGise were joined by students and administrators in a tour of the renovated building, which was completed last March just prior to the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.
 
“This building represents a milestone for Hudson County Community College as it is the first, dedicated Student Center in the College’s 47-year history,” Dr. Reber stated. “We are exceedingly grateful to County Executive DeGise, the County Commissioners, HCCC Trustees, and everyone who assisted in making this dream a reality for our students.”
 
Dr. Reber said the $8.2 million renovation to a College-owned building was designed by
Di Cara| Rubino Architects to create a state-of-the-art setting that affords students the very best in technology, safety and convenience. The renovation by APS Contracting, Inc. included the addition of façade brick stained to match that of the adjoining HCCC Gabert Library; replacement of the existing roof; complete interior demolition; the addition of a new entrance vestibule; installation of new HVAC systems, elevators, emergency generator; and a direct, indoor connection to the Gabert Library. Wi Fi and computer stations are available throughout the building, as are “green” elements for energy efficiency and the sustainability of resources.

The HCCC Student Center’s first floor includes Student Lounges, Student Welcome Center, full-service Café, Veterans’ Lounge, and Security Command Center. The second floor houses offices for Student Life, Student Government and a variety of other student organizations, as well as an Open Lounge, and a large, Multipurpose Room for events and meetings. The office of the College’s Security, Custodial and Facilities Departments, and storage space are located on the lower level.
 
The new HCCC Student Center is the latest of several construction projects undertaken by HCCC that have transformed Journal Square. It is representative of the College’s mission to serve its diverse communities with inclusive educational programs and services that promote student success, socioeconomic mobility, and provide resources for growth. Students can meet outside the classroom, share ideas and values, assist and advise one another, pursue career and employment opportunities, develop better understanding of diverse cultures, and build longstanding relationships.
 
The project was financed with Chapter 12 funding, a state program for county colleges that is funded through State and County capital bond financing. All of the College’s capital improvement endeavors have been completed with appropriated capital. As a result, the College does not carry any capital debt, and not one dollar of student tuition is utilized for debt.#   #   #

HUDSON COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE SPEAKER SERIES EVENT TO FEATURE BREONNA TAYLOR’S mom

HCCC requests members of the community submit questions
 for Ms. Palmer by February 10.

 February 5, 2021, Jersey City, NJ – Hudson County Community College (HCCC) will host Tamika Palmer, Breonna Taylor’s mother, during a College Speaker Series event at 12 noon on Thursday, February 18, 2021.
 
HCCC Assistant Professor of History, Dorothy Anderson, and HCCC Director of Cultural Affairs, Michelle Vitale, will co-moderate the discussion with Ms. Palmer. The live Zoom event will open with a performance by Jersey City Poet Laureate Rashad Wright. The event will conclude with a virtual tour of the exhibition, “Azikiwe Mohammed: ‘Tales from Fold Out Chairs,’ and Rashad Wright: ‘in heaven’s Wakanda’,” which has been curated by Ysabel Pinyol Blasi and is being presented in partnership with Monira Foundation in the HCCC Benjamin J. Dineen and Dennis C. Hull Gallery.
 
In keeping with HCCC President’s Advisory Council on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (PACDEI) practices, the College requests that members of the community participate by submitting questions they may have for Ms. Palmer by February 10, 2020 to mvitale@hccc.edu with the subject line “Breonna Taylor.”
 
Breonna Taylor became a lightning rod for the Black Lives Matter movement when she was shot and killed by police in her Louisville, Kentucky home on March 13, 2020. The 26-year-old Black Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) was roused from her sleep when police, suspecting that Taylor’s ex-boyfriend was storing drugs in her home, used a battering ram to execute a search warrant. No contraband was found.
 
The incident fractured Louisville and led to national protests. Taylor’s family settled a wrongful death civil suit, and the three police officers involved were fired. Louisville passed “Breonna’s Law,” which bans “no knock” warrants that allow police to forcibly enter a residence without warning, and requires body cam use during searches. Many social justice activists are calling for police reforms that address systemic racism on a national level.

learn a language at Hudson County Community College Continuing EDUCATION

Learning a second language offers benefits that go far beyond just broader communication and crossing language and cultural barriers. Although we are all familiar with some of the more common reasons why bilingualism is advantageous, some other surprising advantages are rarely explored. Learning a second language increases cognitive ability according to recent research. It also enhances soft skills, which are a combination of people, social, and communication skills. Moreover, a second language usually increases mastery of the native language as well as a renewed appreciation for it. Certain World Languages predominate today’s necessary technologies such as the internet as well as industries and agencies.

A second language offers marketability and professional development. The Continuing Education Department at Hudson County Community College  welcomes you to join our language institute where you have the opportunity to learn the basics of a new language and expand your view on cultures.
