"I think there’s a lot of value in attending a smaller institution, like JCC, where your very first class is probably going to be taught by people who have been trained and earned degrees in that discipline that you’re taking. We’ve got a tremendous faculty here."

Spotlight: Tim Griffin

"We have wonderful facilities here that I think are real gems for the area. I think JCC does a great job of meeting students where they are, students from the community, and helping them develop skills to develop a successful path to a career field."
