Educate and Empower

Development Skills

The mission of NCI is to prepare participants to meet the demand for highly educated professional employees by providing the participants with real world professional and personal development skills and exposure to various career opportunities and industry leaders.

The Newark College Freshman Institute (NCFI) is a 4-day annual event held in August which features seminars, guest speakers, and various activities that are to prepare incoming college freshman with the skills and motivation to be successful in their academic and professional careers.

Some of these seminars include resume writing, interviewing, financial management, social media etiquette, leadership, stress management, time management, and navigating the college campus. Guest speakers include leaders of Newark-based companies such as Mitch Cahn of Unionwear, Zach Lipner of Barnabas Health (Newark Beth Israel Medical Center), and Steve Safier of Panasonic.

Any Newark resident who is entering his or her freshman year of a 4-year college or university is eligible to participate in the NCFI.

NCI Summer Internship

Newark College Institute
Beginning in June, any student who has successfully completed the Newark College Freshman Institute (NCFI) is given an opportunity to be placed in a paid summer internship with our private, public, and nonprofit partners. The partners are primarily located within the City of Newark and are equally dedicated to our mission of providing the future residents, employees, and leaders of Newark with opportunities to hone their talents and gain hands-on experiences. All of the internships are paid by the partner, the Newark College Institute, or by a combination of both, and last for a minimum of eight weeks. Read More
