Yulanda Spencer, President of the Essex County College Alumni Association, Class of 2023, earned her Associate degree in Criminal Justice. With a perfect 4.0 grade point average, she had the distinction of serving as Class Salutatorian.
When attending ECC, Yulanda joined the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF). “I especially take pride in the relationships I formed with my advisors,” including Criminal Justice Professor Dr. Patrice Davis. “It’s also important to build bonds by participating in extracurricular activities.”
She currently attends the Rutgers University-Newark School of Criminal Justice with the plan of becoming a lawyer. She is pursuing a double minor in Legal Studies and History. “Within the next five years, I see myself working for the United Nations as I aspire to pursue international human rights law.”
At Rutgers, Yulanda is involved in the community. She participates at the Rutgers after-school program Promise Youth University, working with Newark school children in grades three to eight. She assists with their homework and various enrichment activities. Yulanda designed a Public Speaking course for the children to better prepared them for the expectations of high school and college.
Yulanda is ready to recommend her alma mater to prospective students “due to the strength of the community paired with the positive learning culture. Everyone that makes ECC the amazing College that it is offered me a helping hand and, for that, I will always be grateful.”
