Bergen Community College


Since Bergen’s establishment in Paramus by the Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders and its subsequent opening, seven presidents have led the State of New Jersey’s largest community college, prioritizing the hallmarks of a community college education: quality, access, and affordability for all who seek lifelong learning opportunities.

The College ranks No. 1 in the state for associate degree graduates; alumni have attended the country’s most prestigious universities, including all eight Ivy League institutions. More than 740,000 students have taken classes at Bergen, with countless others visiting for community and cultural events.

Resources include the Henry and Edith Cerullo Learning Assistance Center, which has twice earned recognition as the “tutoring centre of the year.” The College’s Paramus main campus features vast physical resources, including the Technology Education Center, the region’s only Health Professions Integrated Teaching Center, and the nation-leading STEM Student Research Center.

Finally, Bergen’s personnel represent an institutional strength, highlighted by the 2015 U.S. Professor of the Year, as named by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
