2019 Recipient of the National College Learning Center Association Frank L. Christ Outstanding Learning Center Award for Two-Year Institutions.

The Mission of the Abegail Douglas-Johnson Academic Support Services Department is to guide students to become autonomous and active learners through providing a variety of supplemental academic programs that foster growth and agency in student-centered, inclusive, and multicultural environments that are designed to meet the needs of each learner .

We strive to continually broaden, improve, and provide academic support services to better serve our students, faculty, and the college community.

To fulfill the mission and vision of Hudson County Community College, we commit ourselves to these values:

  • Integrity and Transparency: We believe that strong moral principles and honesty are essential to developing rapport with students.
  • Inclusivity and Understanding: We accept, include, and invite all students who are in need of academic guidance. We seek first to hear, not tell. To empathize, not criticize. To know before we do.
  • Student Agency: We believe that our students are the greatest stakeholders in their educational journey. Students are encouraged to become active learners and taught to self-regulate their learning experience—giving voice and choice in how they learn.
  • Grit: We don’t quit.

Words cannot express how grateful I am for all the tutors who helped me, especially since English is not my first language. I have spent countless hours doing homework and research at the center, that it has become a second home.
