Message from the President
September 2017 marks a significant milestone for our college as Gloucester County College (GCC)/Rowan College at Gloucester County (RCGC) celebrates its 50th anniversary. As we look back on half a century of education and innovation, the College’s core mission to cultivate student success remains unfailing as RCGC continues to establish itself as a leader in higher education.
During the past 50 years, the College has changed — not only in name but also by expanding educational programs, offering cost-saving initiatives with our premier partner Rowan University and by changing the purpose and perception of community colleges. The outstanding dedication, knowledge and farsightedness of our faculty and staff throughout the GCC and RCGC years have produced a growing campus that provides students with the opportunity to excel and create better lives.
Please join me on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 12 p.m. on the campus plaza for an employee appreciation barbeque to celebrate 50 years of making a difference within the community and in the lives of RCGC students — past, current and future. RCGC employees will receive a complimentary 50th anniversary polo shirt and are encouraged to wear them to the event. (Rain date is Oct. 4.)
Thank you for helping RCGC to achieve 50 years of student success. I look forward to celebrating with you on this historic occasion.
- Frederick Keating, Ed. D.
