Rutgers opening new facility at community college

    Rutgers University and Atlantic Cape Community College are opening a building to allow the university to reach more students in southern New Jersey.  

    The state’s main university has been expanding its efforts to teach throughout the state.

    The $7.5 million Mays Landing facility is to be home to a degree-completion program and a certificate program for teachers of gifted students.


    Rutgers has been sending professors to the Atlantic Cape campus for six years and it has similar arrangements at two other community colleges.

    Earlier this month, new Rutgers President Robert Barchi said that while he does not want to add many more students to the New Brunswick campus, he would like to expand programs to educate more people around the state.
