Rutgers University Expands to Serve More Students, by Nancy L. Kourland

On September 28, 2012, Rutgers University formally opened its Lifelong Learning Center at Atlantic Cape Community College (ACCC) in Mays Landing, New Jersey. The University has maintained a productive relationship with ACCC for several years, and the new facility greatly increases educational opportunities for area students.

This expansion follows closely on the heels of the New Jersey Medical and Health Science Education Restructuring Act, which was signed into law in August by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. This legislation allowed the absorption of most of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) into the Rutgers system.

Rutgers University is a highly ranked national research university with a student body of nearly 60,000 students from all over the world. The new additions augment an already extensive network of campus locations in Camden, New Brunswick, and Newark as well as existing partnerships with community colleges across the state.

About the Author: Nancy L. Kourland is an alumna of the Rutgers University School of Communications, Information, and Library Studies, from which she earned her MLIS in 2004.
