Basic Needs Supports

The New Jersey State Plan for Higher Education: "Where Opportunity Meets Innovation: A Student-Centered Vision for New Jersey Higher Education" includes a tenet that every student in New Jersey should have access to an affordable route to a college degree with predictable tuition and fees, and support to help with non-tuition expenses. This playbook provides leaders, administrators, faculty, and staff at New Jersey colleges and universities with actionable information, evidence-based promising practices, and scalable resource solutions to effectively and sustainably help students secure their basic needs including food, housing and shelter, childcare, and transportation.
