The 22,000 square-foot facility will be used for numerous events and programs. It accommodates 2,000 students and features 12 classrooms with varying functionality, a 24-seat computer lab and a student lounge. It will house Rutgers’ degree-completion program and starting in January 2013, the Gifted Education Professional Certificate Program for K-12 educators.
Rutgers has offered courses, taught by Rutgers professors, on the Atlantic Cape campus since fall 2006. The university has similar partnerships with Brookdale Community College in Monmouth County and Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg, Somerset County. Rutgers’ off campus programs are among the lifelong learning initiatives coordinated by the Division of Continuing Studies.
Each year, more than 50,000 individuals take advantage of Rutgers’ continuing professional education and lifelong learning programs. More than 2,300 online and off-campus courses are available to individuals in New Jersey and around the world.
