As a public polytechnic research university, NJIT is committed to education, research, economic development and engagement while contributing solutions for the grand challenge we face today. Our core values in civility, social responsibility, diversity and sustainability guide us in our commitment to fulfilling our mission. At NJIT we develop responsibly and respect the needs of the future generations.

The 2025 Strategic Plan establishes a framework for the campus community on how we are integrating sustainability into our mission. NJIT aims at making sustainability an institutional learning goal and ensuring our students graduate as global citizens.

Currently, we are seeking collaborators across our community to achieve the goals established in our strategic plan.
