MAYS LANDING – Atlantic Cape Community College’s Board of Trustees approved resolutions to lay off 19 employees and reassign others effective April 26. The action was taken to address a revenue shortfall due to declining enrollment. The board met April 25, according to a release. 

The board authorized the college to issue notices of layoff in March following a steady decline in enrollment for the past seven years.

Positions were eliminated from a variety of college departments at all three campuses and include exempt, support and supervisory staff.

Among other actions, the board approved awarding an honorary resolution to Stephen Dunn, who will be the keynote speaker at the 50th-anniversary commencement May 18.

Dunn was a member of the college’s first graduating class in 1968 and was the first elected Student Government Association president.

The next meeting of the Board of Trustees will be held at 7 p.m., May 23, at the Cape May County Campus. All are welcome to attend.
