NJ Colleges and Universities Seen as High Quality, but Cost Is a Barrier

Galloway, NJ

Adults in New Jersey view Garden State colleges and universities as having high quality and providing high value for the investment, with a majority saying colleges help in job and workforce development, according to a Stockton Polling Institute poll of over 1,000 individuals in New Jersey.

"Cost is seen as a major barrier, and citizens expect state and college leaders to make needed reforms to boost college affordability and completion," said Dr. Darryl Greer, Ph.D., Senior Fellow at the Hughes Center and Director of the Higher Education Strategic Information and Governance Center. The poll is part of a larger project on higher education policy reform, “Building Public Trust in an Era of Change.”
