Office of the President

Welcome to the New Jersey Institute of Technology.

A university's people are its most important asset. They are the heart and soul of this rich, diverse and ever-changing organization known as NJIT. I hope you will take a few moments to learn about NJIT.

Joel S. Bloom




The NJIT community mourns the loss of Arthur S. Hoffman, president of The Leir Charitable Foundations and a great friend of our university. His loss will be sorely felt. Arthur dedicated his life to advancing the vision of Henry Leir who supported NJIT's mission. Arthur leaves a legacy of accomplishment that has benefited many of our students. We offer our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
