The Board of Trustees approved the honoring of the College’s founders as an all-college program celebrating the founding of Ramapo College and recognizing those faculty, staff, administrators and trustees as “founders” and “pioneers.”

This program may include current campus constituents as well as outreach to the College’s founders, pioneers, alumni, and retirees. The year is calculated based on 1969, the year Ramapo was established.
