Student Leadership Programs

Student leadership is an important part of the college experience. Leadership helps develop skills to be used during your time at Atlantic Cape, at your transfer institution, in your future employment and within your community. In addition to programs within the Student Government Association and Student Clubs, the Counseling and Support Services area offers additional opportunities for entering freshmen and current students to engage in leadership activities.

Peer Leaders Program

The Office of Counseling and Support Services aspires to enhance student leadership and student involvement through a peer leadership program. Our mission is to create a welcoming environment for all of our students through unique peer relationships.

Through these endeavors this program will ultimately increase first year student retention rates as well as enhance their willingness to excel in the academic and student leadership arena. The mentor/mentee relationship contributes to the overall success of students at Atlantic Cape Community College.

Men of Atlantic Cape (MAC) 

The recruitment, retention and graduation rate of African-American males in college is a growing concern for all colleges and universities. Atlantic Cape Community has addressed this issue by creating a support group for this population. The group has scheduled meetings throughout the year where they discuss issues that may interfere with the achievement of their academic goals. The group is also exposed to information and skills that will enhance their potential for success through workshops, seminars, leadership training and a retreat.
