Stockton in Atlantic City: A New Wave of Opportunity

Stockton University’s roots are in Atlantic City.  In the fall of 1971, a construction delay at the Galloway campus moved the first semester of the new college to the Mayflower Hotel on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.  The experience of living and learning in a close-knit setting on the ocean encouraged institutional values that endure to this day – a caring community, excellence in teaching, civic engagement and an active student life all got their start at the Mayflower Hotel.
 

Now, a new wave of opportunity exists to expand Stockton’s impact in Atlantic City.  Through a public-private partnership with Atlantic City Development Corporation, a new Stockton University campus is being built in Atlantic City.  The new campus is on the beachfront at the end of Albany Avenue, extending over Atlantic Avenue and bordering Ventnor Avenue and Trenton Avenue. The campus will include student housing on the Boardwalk that will accommodate more than 500 students. 1,800 students will study in the new academic building being built on the site of the old Atlantic City High School.  The project also includes a parking garage and administrative offices for South Jersey Gas. 
 

Stockton is honored to be named an Anchor Institution as part of Atlantic City’s revitalization efforts.  We will do all we can to live out our public mission to educate, be civically engaged and provide economic stimulus to the region we serve.  Imagine the positive impact of nearly 2,000 or more students, faculty and staff living and learning in the heart of Atlantic City.  Service-learning opportunities for volunteering, internships and even employment will connect classroom education with real-world experiences.  The Stockton community will be immersed in the city, taking full advantage of all it has to offer.  

 

When Stockton's Atlantic City campus opens in the fall of 2018 it will house the following programs: Social Work, Business Studies, Hospitality and Tourism Management Studies, Organizational Leadership, Community Leadership and Civic Engagement.

 

How you can help: 


To fully capitalize on this new wave of opportunity, Stockton University seeks to raise a minimum of $2 million in philanthropic support over the next five years.

 

Make an impact and a gift today by contributing to one of our Atlantic City priorities:
 

  • Atlantic City Opportunity Fund - When fully funded, this endowed fund will provide approximately $60,000 annually for initiatives designed to expand Stockton students' engagement with and in Atlantic City.  Proposals for initiative funding will be submitted by members of the Stockton community.  The Fund will support efforts that emphasize student experience as well as University and Atlantic City collaboration.  Examples include student tutoring/mentoring programs with area schools, stage production that involves students and community members, partnerships with area non-profit organizations to assist with marketing, and programs to connect Stockton students with the culturally rich and diverse Atlantic City communities.  The possibilities will stretch to the limits of people’s imagination.  The potential impact on students and the community is significant. 
     

  • Atlantic City Scholarship Fund - When fully funded, this endowed scholarship fund will provide approximately $20,000 annually to be awarded to qualified students who graduated from Atlantic City High School and come to Stockton.  Most Stockton students receive financial aid and many work throughout the school year to make ends meet.  Scholarship assistance aids student success.  As one scholarship recipient remarked, “This scholarship allowed me to work less and study more.”  The Atlantic City Scholarship Fund will give Atlantic City students the opportunity to achieve their dream of a high-quality education and demonstrates Stockton’s commitment to Atlantic City.
