During the 2012-2013 academic year, the college took major strides to improve the campus learning environment, foster student success and raise critical dollars to support capital and scholarship initiatives.
- Underscoring the college's commitment to ensuring access for residents of Atlantic and Cape May counties, we embarked on a comprehensive relief campaign for our students who were affected by Superstorm Sandy.
- On the building front, we made significant strides toward the completion of Blueprint 2020, reaching milestones in the construction of the state-of-the-art STEM building at the Mays Landing Campus and the Caesars Entertainment Wing for Hospitality and Gaming Studies at the Worthington Atlantic City Campus, and securing funds to develop student success centers at all three of Atlantic Cape's campuses. Additionally, we held a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony for our solar panel projects at our Mays Landing and Cape May County campuses.
- The college was also privileged to host the annual New Jersey Council of County College's Best Practices Conference, drawing representatives from the state's 19 community colleges to our Mays Landing Campus.
The aforementioned are just a few of the highlights from academic year 2012-2013. Indeed, this annual report will emphasize a range of accomplishments from our students, faculty and staff.
For the coming year, we look forward to grand openings for both the STEM building and the Caesars Entertainment Wing for Hospitality and Gaming Studies, to the official groundbreaking ceremonies for the student success centers, and to watching the success of our students as they work toward their goal of obtaining higher education. I invite you to visit www.atlantic.edu for updates on all these and other major Atlantic Cape initiatives.
