President's Message

Welcome to Bergen Community College (BCC).  Each year more than 17,000 students begin their educational journey at BCC.  Many are here to pursue their lifelong dreams, goals, and passions.  Others choose to prepare for a new career or to update their skills for advancement in their current jobs.

Bergen Community College’s mission is to educate a diverse student population in a supportive and challenging academic environment that fosters civility and respect. The College offers a comprehensive set of accessible, affordable, high-quality credit and non-credit courses as well as degree and non-degree programs. Bergen provides lifelong learning opportunities for all members of the community. The College responds to community needs through workforce training and continuing education, and by developing programs for employers.

At BCC we are committed to student success.  We support students in reaching their goals through excellence in teaching and learning with services that assist students in doing their best work.  BCC focuses on programs that give students the tools and support that they need to succeed.   Our favorite day each year is commencement when we applaud our students for a job well done.

I hope that you will take the time to visit Bergen Community College and learn about the educational opportunities that are available to you.  We look forward to having you become part of the Bergen Family.

Sincerely,

B. Kaye Walter, Ph.D.

President
