President’s messAge
As the president of Atlantic Cape Community College, I am pleased to share with you the
2019-2020 edition of the college catalog

Thank you for choosing Atlantic Cape Community College. I am pleased and honored to be the
ninth president of this institution. As president, I will continue to devote my time and energy
to achieving Atlantic Cape’s vision of fulfilling regional educational needs, strengthening our
community’s economy, and partnering with high schools and higher education institutions to
create seamless educational pathways and maximize student success

Atlantic Cape serves Atlantic and Cape May counties with an unwavering commitment to
an affordable education, academic excellence and a relevant curriculum. Our academic
programs lead to career opportunities and have the ability to transfer seamlessly to four-year
universities in New Jersey and other colleges and universities where we have transfer
agreements. With our online courses, a dozen online degree programs, and our
new 12-week seasonal semester in Cape May, Atlantic Cape is as accessible as ever

We have achieved a great deal in over 50 years, and we will continue improving our
educational offerings and support services. Our greatest strengths are our students, faculty,
staff, administrators and trustees. Working together, we fulfill our mission of creating opportu­
nity and providing access to excellent programs and services that successfully meet students’
educational goals. Everyone at Atlantic Cape is excited to be a part of an institution that
provides educational opportunities and support services that prepare students to improve
their personal quality of life and to succeed in the 21st century

I look forward to seeing you around campus!
Sincerely,
Dr. Barbara Gaba
President
