Message from Dr. Gaba Regarding Stockton at Atlantic Cape Signing

To Our College Community:

Atlantic Cape takes great pride in the official partnerships we’ve established with Stockton, Rutgers and FDU with the aim of providing pathways for our students to achieve their educational goals. Our partnerships are strong, with each institution providing opportunity and choices for students who wish to transfer. These partnerships are featured on the College’s webpage.

As we move forward to “get the word out” and “tell our story,” more emphasis will be placed on promoting and marketing these agreements so the College community and the public are more aware of the great opportunities we provide for our students.

As these initiatives are reintroduced, I will be inviting you to attend any public announcements that are scheduled.  On Friday, I sent our College community an invitation to a Stockton University and Atlantic Cape Partnership Signing.  Continue reading
