Stockton Stories

In Fall 2021, Stockton began celebrating fifty years of teaching excellence.

This multimedia site celebrates the challenges and achievements of that half century. Using historic materials from the Stockton University archives and from donations by alumni, faculty, staff, and community members, we have recorded where we have been and, in the next fifty years, where we will be going. We have not told all of Stockton's stories, but many.
