Since 1981, the Institute for Holocaust & Genocide Studies has offered educational programs for educators, students, and the community. Through education and unique programming, the Institute—a collaboration between RVCC and the Jewish Federation of Somerset, Hunterdon & Warren Counties—promotes tolerance, understanding, and compassion. The Center offers educational seminars, workshops, and presentations for students and teachers about the lessons learned from the Holocaust as well as genocides that continue today.

The Resource Center of the Institute for Holocaust and Genocide Studies is located on the second floor of the Evelyn S. Field Library at Raritan Valley Community College. Established in 1999, the Resource Center houses computers, books, a video collection, and other reference materials for research and study as well as an area for classroom instruction. The Center’s Morris and Dorothy Hirsch Research Library of Holocaust and Genocide Studies offers an extensive collection of materials on the Holocaust, genocides, and diversity.
