The mission of the Brookdale Community College Organizing Committee (BCCOC) is to support the highest levels of education for Brookdale students while seeking to join with other Brookdale professionals as an integral part of the Brookdale community. We are organizing to establish a unified and official voice for interacting with Brookdale’s administration to achieve the following goals:

·      Provide a forum for communication among its adjuncts

·      Advocate the respectful, valued and uniform treatment for its adjuncts 

·      Negotiate fair compensation, benefits, working conditions and due process for all its adjuncts.
