The Newark City of Learning Collaborative Executive Committee  announced that Bloomfield College will be awarded the First Annual NCLC "Excellence and Leadership" award. This award recognizes the institution's hard work and dedication to supporting the youth of Newark in acquiring skills, fortitude and services needed to access and succeed in college.

"With over 20% of our overall student body hailing from Newark, Bloomfield College is a minority serving institution offering 52% African American and 27.5% Hispanic students access to higher education. We are proud to support these men and women as they pursue their educational goals while at the same time helping the NCLC achieve their goals. We are honored to receive this recognition." said Bloomfield College president, Rich Levao. 

The award will be presented during the NCLC Recognition Ceremony on March 23, 2016 at 5:30 p.m. at Rutgers University-Newark, Paul Robeson Campus Center (University Club).

The goal of the NCLC is to increase the percentage of residents with postsecondary degrees, certificates, and quality credentials from the current 17 percent to 25 percent by 2025. The mission is to promote quality, equitable access and success to all students living in the City of Newark, especially underrepresented groups, such as African American and Latino males and adult learners, and those with some college but no degree.
