The President’s Award of Merit

Initiated in 1994, The President’s Award of Merit recognizes distinguished accomplishments by Ramapo College alumni.  Nominations are suggested by members of Ramapo College community and are reviewed by the presidents of the Alumni Association, the Student Government Association, the Faculty Assembly, and the Professional Staff Association.  The final selection is made by the President of the College.
