Stockton University recently received a $100,000 state grant to conduct the feasibility study on the new Marine and Environmental Science Center. According to university officials, the facility would cost about $41 million to build on a 15-acre portion of Bader Field. Stockton University’s current science facility in Port Republic was built in the early 1900s. Bader Field, the former Atlantic City Municipal Airport, closed in 2006. The site is about 140 acres.
