President’s messAge
As the president of Atlantic Cape Community College, I am pleased to share with you the
2020-2021 edition of the college catalog

Thank you for choosing Atlantic Cape Community College. I am honored to be the ninth
president of this institution, and 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 a variety of career pathways and are designed to transfer seamlessly to many four-year
universities in New Jersey and beyond. We strive to continuously improve our educational
offerings and support services to meet the evolving needs of our community and to prepare
our students to succeed in the 21st century

Now more than ever, we also recognize the importance of staying ahead of the curve on
technological innovation and accessibility. We are well equipped to provide an excellent
educational experience both remotely and in person, with our online and hybrid course offer-
ings, a dozen online degree programs, and three campuses in two counties

At Atlantic Cape, our greatest strengths are our students, faculty, staff, administrators, and
trustees. Working together, we have risen to every challenge we have faced in over 50 years
of the college’s history, and this is what makes us Atlantic Cape Strong!
I look forward to seeing where Atlantic Cape will take you

Sincerely,
Dr. Barbara Gaba
President
