Dr. Peter L. Mora

Mora was appointed president last year. Raised in Atlantic City, Mora has served ACCC for 31 years, including the position of vice president for continuing education and Cape May County.

As president, his primary focus is to foster student learning by promoting access, excellence and stewardship for all programs and services offered at ACCC. Mora recognizes the ongoing challenge of maximizing access for diverse constituent groups, while maintaining quality educational standards. His commitment to stewardship of the college’s infrastructure is demonstrated by the recent expansion project at the college’s Worthington Atlantic City Center and by the initiation of a master facilities and academic plan for the Mays Landing Campus.

The installation ceremony included greetings to the president from several people, including Assemblyman Jeff Van Drew, Assemblyman Nelson T. Albano, Lawrence Nespoli, president of the New Jersey Council of County Colleges, and student representatives. Additionally, Dr. John Roueche, director of the Community College Leadership Program at the University of Texas at Austin, was the keynote speaker. The ceremony concluded with Mora’s acceptance of the office of president.
