We have learned and confirmed that Stockton University President Dr. Harvey Kesselman, his executive management team and staff members have achieved a very impressive and hard won COVID-19 student vaccination goal.

Kesselman will not be be commenting on this subject until tomorrow, Wednesday, September 1, 2021 in an exclusive WPG Talk Radio 95.5 interview (7:05 a.m. to 7:35 a.m.) on the “Hurley in the Morning” program.

However, well placed sources have confirmed to us that as of today, of the more than 9,300 students enrolled at Stockton University this term, 100% are either vaccinated or have presented medical/religious exemptions.

In the current (challenging) and divided times, this is an extraordinary accomplishment that required a relentless focus and dedication to the task at hand … up against a fast approaching deadline.

Last Monday, August 23, 2021, Stockton University had more than 1,000 students out of compliance.

We have learned that through a combination of continuous robocalls, text messages, emails, and good old fashioned … one-on-one telephone calls, they were able to reduce that number to zero.

The Stockton University staff worked day and night to reduce the number of students who had previously failed to respond, but given the Herculean effort by Stockton employees, the students responded.

Dr. Kesselman demonstrated supreme focus upon achieving 100 percent compliance by the start of the Fall, 2021 Semester.

This achievement positions Stockton University to be safe as humanly possible during the latest challenges presented by COVID-19.
