About Cumberland

President's Welcome

Welcome to Cumberland County College where nothing matters more to us than your success!


Cumberland is ranked the #1 county college in New Jersey and we place among the top 2% of our national peers. As president, I am delighted that you are considering our college as the first step toward completing your undergraduate degree.

We have built our reputation on the excellent education provided by a phenomenal caliber of faculty who are committed to our students. Our classes are small and allow for engagement with our faculty across our academic divisions, in person and online. Our student services team ensures you have all the support to succeed inside and outside of the classroom, and can accommodate a range of student needs.

If you have not yet been to our campus, I encourage you to visit. Our campus provides an idyllic setting with great natural aesthetics conducive to learning. While you are here, be sure to catch a show at our Fine & Performing Arts Center or a Dukes athletics competition.

Explore our University Center, our Center for Workforce and Economic Development partnership, or any of our facilities and collaborations. We are committed to propelling you to greatness.

Now, let’s get started! 

Yves Salomon-Fernandez, Ph.D., President
