What makes your college a great place to work?

Employee Comment

I appreciate the ability to help the Community we serve in many different facets. Forming partnerships with local business and industry to help with their needs; whether it be specific trainings or employees. The program specific and educational training opportunities we provide our surrounding schools in our service areas. The constant communication between our Faculty and Staff to determine what works; and what doesn't. And most importantly the sense of pride that it gives you to help and watch our students be successful in a chosen career path; years later returning to thank you for helping them in their journey.

President's Statement

Somerset Community College is a special place based on the synergy of our people, our communities, and our region. People treat each other like family with a common goal with the same question: how can we help students and each other succeed? Whether it is a faculty member following up with a student issue or a staff member going the extra mile, the results are distinctly focused on self-success through student success.
