“Founders’ & Pioneers’ Day is an annual college-wide event which recognizes and honors the numerous contributions of the College’s founding faculty, staff and administrators and emphasizes the unique mission of Ramapo College. The faculty, staff and administrators and trustees of Ramapo College in its first several years were critical to the ongoing pursuit of excellence in teaching and learning. These founders and pioneers took a chance when joining this new collegiate effort and each November the College celebrates their commitment and the College’s ongoing success in providing our students with a strong foundation for a lifetime of achievement.”
