This has been a year of transformation for Stockton University!

Throughout the 2017-2018 year, we watched, in anticipation, three major capital projects take shape and reach completion. 

Earlier this spring, we celebrated the expansion of Stockton University at Manahawkin, which will enable us to offer more health science programs and hands-on learning experience for nursing students in the Ocean County region.

In May 2018, we opened the doors to a state-of-the-art Health Sciences Center and a second Unified Science Center. The two buildings combined create an academic quad, transforming the entrance of the Galloway campus. These facilities promise unlimited opportunites for students to engage in research alongside our faculty and develop the innovative and critical thinking skills required to be successful in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields.

Finally, our University is now steps away from the beach and Boardwalk with the addition of Stockton University Atlantic City. Our new residential campus, which includes an Academic Center and Residential Complex, offers students an unique living and learning experience in a coastal city. This historic moment is especially meaningful to me as a member of Stockton's inaugural class, which took place at the Mayflower Hotel on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in 1971.

All three projects reaffirm our commitment to providing New Jersey students access to a high-quality education close to home.

Read more about our transformation and highlights from 2017-2018 throughout this year's Annual Report. I invite you to visit our various locations and follow us on social media.
