Rutgers University will break ground June 21 for an academic building on the Atlantic Cape Community College campus that will offer programs leading to bachelor's and graduate degrees.

Atlantic Cape and Rutgers signed a lease agreement Tuesday for a half-acre of land on the site of unused tennis courts behind a small building currently used by Rutgers on the Mays Landing campus. The lease calls for Rutgers to pay $1 a year for 50 years with an option to renew in five additional 10-year increments.

Rutgers also will continue to pay a service fee for its students' use of Atlantic Cape facilities. The fee will be $25,000 in 2011, then rise every four years based on enrollment and costs. Students will use parking and other student services offered by Atlantic Cape.

The entire cost of the construction and related expenses will be paid by Rutgers.

"We told them from the outset we could not put up any of the cost," said Richard Perniciaro, dean of facilities, planning and research at Atlantic Cape. "The design of the building also had to complement our campus plans."

Raphael Caprio, vice president of continuous education at Rutgers, said school officials expect to sign a contract for construction this week. He said 11 proposals were received and that four finalists made formal presentations. He declined to release any details until the contract is signed, but said the bids were very competitive.
