About New Jersey City University
At New Jersey City University, goals and dreams are right at home. NJCU is large enough to provide world-class opportunities for learning. Yet our classes are small enough to afford a highly-personalized experience that empowers students to realize their greatest aspirations. It begins with academic excellence. NJCU's fully-accredited colleges of arts and sciences, education and professional studies offer 41 undergraduate degree programs and 27 masters programs and 2 doctoral programs, including emerging and interdisciplinary fields. A student-teacher ratio of 12:1 and average class size of 24 translate to exceptional attention from a dedicated, innovative and involved faculty. www.njcu.edu
The book Lean In is focused on encouraging women to pursue their ambitions, and changing the conversation from what we can’t do to what we can do. LeanIn.Org is the next chapter. We are committed to offering women the ongoing inspiration and support to help them achieve their goals. If we talk openly about the challenges women face and work together, we can change the trajectory of women and create a better world for everyone. We offer a growing library of free online lectures on topics including leadership and communication. Produced in partnership with the Clayman Institute for Gender Studies at Stanford University and other well-known experts, these lectures offer women practical skills they can apply in their daily lives. Lean In Circles are small groups that meet monthly to encourage and support each other in an atmosphere of confidentiality and trust. We provide the materials and support to run a successful Circle, including online spaces that make it easy for members to stay up-to-date and connected. www.leanin.org
