Student Leadership Programs

Men of Atlantic Cape (MAC)

Men of Atlantic Cape (MAC) is focused on the promotion of the intellectual advancement of Black and Latino males (although programming is open to all males) by demonstrating and reinforcing the essential values of scholarship and perseverance through a series of activities that encourage self-motivation, self-empowerment, sound decision-making, academic excellence and community service.  For more information call Michael Forest at (609) 343-5614 or email mforest@atlantic.edu.

Leadership and Education Development (LEAD)

College faculty and staff nominate students for participation in the LEAD program.  Selected students participate in leadership training activities in an effort to encourage academic excellence, enhanced leadership skills and develop effective leaders on campus and in the surrounding communities. For information, call Dr. Aigner Holmes at (609)343-5098 or email aholmes@atlantic.edu.

Peer Leaders Program

Peer Leaders provide support, information, encouragement and act as a referral source for first-time freshman who may need assistance making the transition to college. Peer Leaders promote an awareness of campus resources, assist students in the Career Center and the pursuit of academic excellence.

Second year students who have earned at least 24 credits and have a 2.5 GPA interested in becoming a Peer Leader can apply in The Center for Student Success. Selections are made during the spring semester by the Student Leadership Selection Committee. Once selections are made, students are provided training to begin mentoring during the fall semester.
