Message from the Dean Aaron Lorenz
School of Social Science and Human Services

Aaron R. S. LorenzAs 2018 begins, we intend to continue pushing our students to new heights and stressing the mission of the College. I know that mission has served you well and we will be certain to further that legacy. But we can’t do it without your help. You as a member of the G.O. L D. “Graduates Of the Last Decade” at Ramapo represent our College’s future. We need your input as to how to make improvements in preparing our graduates for today’s workforce. And we are here to help you further your career as well.

As Dean of the School of Social Science and Human Services, I am honored to serve the faculty and staff in continuing to showcase Ramapo’s unique brand. The School of Social Science and Human Services plays a fundamental role in carrying out the mission of a student-centered, research and teaching-focused, and service-oriented public institution.  Our incredible faculty members guide our students, as they did with you, in the journey of intellectual discovery. Ramapo College students believe they have the duty to make a difference in society and we stress that mantra every chance we get.

The fall semester brought us new accolades and we’re proud to continue to promote Ramapo College and SSHS. My goal as dean is to work with colleagues, students, friends and alumni to promote the social sciences across the College and the Northeast.

Welcome Ramapo Alumni G.O.L.D. from the Cahill Career Center

Exciting changes are underway at Ramapo College’s Career Center!

In January, the Cahill Career Center transitioned from the Archway to a new career management platform called Handshake. Handshake is used by over 475 career centers nationwide including Stanford, Princeton, Brown and Berkeley.

Handshake gives Ramapo students and alumni access to a powerful network of national employers in addition to our established employer partners. In the 3 months since we introduced Handshake, the number of job postings – full-time, part-time and internships – increased by 134% from the same time period last year.

Giving at Ramapo

Every single GOLD alumni makes a difference in the Ramapo community. Here’s why your support is essential:

  • Leadership: Your participation identifies you as a leader amongst your peers – and greater alumni participation increases value to your degree.
  • Philanthropy: With a gift to the College, you play a vital role in ensuring that current and future students have the same opportunities you did.
  • Commitment: Your annual support allows the College to continue to provide much needed scholarships and faculty research grants and maintain its role as a leading institution.

What size gift should I make?

Every single gift counts, regardless of the size. To start, make a gift in honor of your class year ($20.17 = Class of 2017)

If you work for a company that matches charitable gifts, you may be able to double or even triple the impact of your gift…at no cost to you! See if your company will match your gift by visiting:
