Success Stories

Saint Peter’s University

Jersey City

Saint Peter’s University is a bastion of opportunity:  90 percent of its students are first-generation college attendees.  However, the school has faced challenges in growing and retaining students, including its lack of a fully functional campus center.  NJCC provided the school $5 million in NMTCs for development of a state-of-the-art, six-story campus and community center, which has improved student life, created over 100 permanent jobs, and helped to revitalize its neighborhood.

NJCC’s NMTC investment helped Saint Peter’s build a state-of-the-art campus center.
