The College of New Jersey

The College of New Jersey has always been a very highly regarded state school with close ties to the capital, where it was founded and resided until moving to neighboring Ewing in the 1930s. Strong ties to Trenton continue to this day. Many student and faculty initiatives originate through TCNJ's Bonner Center for Civic and Community Engagement, which actively seeks partnerships with Trenton schools and community organizations. One of the most far reaching is the Trenton Prevention Policy Board, a grass roots community building initiative. Partnering with Trenton Central High School, the Bonner Center seeks to use TCNJ's resources to help TCHS students succeed in their academic and personal lives. TCNJ Bonner Community Scholars have also partnered with the Rescue Mission of Trenton on pop-up thrift stores on campus, which plow proceeds back into the Rescue Mission. And TCNJ partners with Kidsbridge, which through its life skills programs seeks to provide targeted instruction to smaller groups of at-risk elementary and middle schoolers in Trenton. TCNJ generously hosts the Kidsbridge Tolerance Museum on its campus too.
