Institutional History

Richard Stockton (1730-1781)

Richard Stockton was one of the New Jersey signers of the Declaration of Independence. While he has no known connection to the South Jersey area, the original members of the Board of Trustees chose to name the institution for him after the originally-proposed name - South Jersey State College - was rejected by the New Jersey Board of Higher Education.
