The United States is ready to welcome home more than 2 million veterans as they return from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Here at Atlantic Cape Community College, we are dedicating our time and effort to support our Veterans in reaching their educational goals. We acknowledge all of their efforts and sacrifices in keeping our nation safe and strong and we are proudly developing new support systems to help our Veterans with the transition from solider to student.
At Atlantic Cape, we are pleased to provide the services of a dedicated counselor, Ms. Ellen Splaver, who will be available to our Veterans for academic career counseling, EOF services, mental health services and other support as needed.
The Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs Office Certifying Official, Michelle Andrews, is also available to help students navigate through the educational benefit process. (For more information on educational benefits visit: www.gibill.va.gov)
An Advisory Committee comprised of faculty, staff and students has been created by the Dean of Students. The committee will discuss current issues regarding our Veterans and work together on developing new and improved services.
Atlantic Cape has also developed a Veterans Club. The Veterans Club provides a support group for Veterans’ who have similar experiences and goals and offers activities throughout the academic year, such as workshops, seminars, demonstrations, and trips.
This year the Veterans Club hopes to plan a trip to Washington DC. Club members will also be asked to assist with our annual Veterans Day ceremony.*
This year, Atlantic Cape will proudly honor our Veterans with a ceremony on November 12th in celebration of Veteran’s Day. The ceremony will allow us to communicate to our community our heartfelt thanks to all Veterans who served throughout history and the new Veterans currently serving today Please join us on our Mays Landing campus, J Building, at 12:30pm for our annual Veterans Day Ceremony..
