Gloucester County College (NJ) Joins in Partnership with Rowan University and Adopts New Name

Ali Houshmand and Frederick Keating have a guest column posted on NJ.com describing the relationship between their two institutions.  Rowan University and Gloucester County College formed a partnership that also led to a name change for GCC to become Rowan College at Gloucester County.

Rowan University in Glassboro, NJ was founded in 1923 as New Jersey State Normal School at Glassboro.  The name was later changed to New Jersey State Teachers College at Glassboro and then to Glassboro State College in 1958.  Rowan College of New Jersey became the name in 1992 and Rowan University after 1997.

Rowan College at Gloucester County, located in Sewell, NJ, was founded as Gloucester County College in 1968.  The institution operates as a comprehensive, co-educational, two-year institution and the partnership will expand opportunities for additional programs and degrees.
