Academic Institutes and Departments

Welcome to the new Brookdale

For nearly 50 years, Brookdale Community College has remained committed to providing affordable, convenient higher education to students of all ages and backgrounds. With a main campus in Lincroft, New Jersey, and regional locations in Freehold, Hazlet, Long Branch, Neptune, and Wall, Brookale is the main provider of higher education in Monmouth County.

Throughout those decades, however, many things have changed. The workplace has evolved, requiring job seekers to learn new skills and achieve a higher level of education than ever before. Today’s students have unique goals and face unique challenges, and Brookdale must adapt in order to give them the best possible chance of success.

As part of this transformation, Brookdale has spent the last two years researching and analyzing college operations. The college-wide reorganization, which began in earnest this year, is designed to improve the student experience at Brookdale while streamlining operations and fulfilling a mandate to reduce costs at the college.

Already, we are seeing signs of success.

These changes include:

  • Aligning complementary academic disciplines and divisions as part of Brookdale’s new Academic Institutes, which are detailed below
  • Implementing a new One Stop Student Services Center, which will serve as a central location for all student enrollment and support services
  • Developing new services and programs designed specifically to support today’s learner
  • Opening the new Bankier Library Learning Commons and Tutoring Center, where students can receive walk-in academic support, research assistance, or help with online tools and Brookdale resources.

As the rebuilding of Brookdale continues, we welcome your input and ideas.
