Library and Learning Commons Campaign

In June 2016, Ramapo College was awarded a $15 million grant from the State of New Jersey to renovate the George T. Potter Library and to construct a Learning Center addition. The Ramapo College Board of Trustees held a special meeting on November 21, 2016 and approved a tentative budget with defined funding sources for the project. The firm of Bohlin, Cywinski, and Jackson of Wilkes Barre, PA have been engaged for architectural and engineering services.

A dedicated fundraising initiative will play a significant role in funding this project which will improve facilities used by all students and faculty. If you would like more information on contributing to the campaign, please contact Lisa Johnson, Assistant Vice President of Institutional Advancement, at 201-684-6259 or

The trading lab, on the fifth floor of the ASB, was the last phase of construction for the School, named after Millicent and Richard Anisfield, whose donation of over $5 million supported the school.

Adler Center for Nursing Excellence

G WingThe Board of Trustees at Ramapo College announced a $2 million gift to the College from Bergen County philanthropists Myron “Mike” and Elaine Adler of Franklin Lakes for establishment of the Adler Center for Nursing Excellence.  The gift helped to fund the new home of Ramapo College’s highly-acclaimed and expanding nursing programs, as well as state-of-the-art labs to enhance the education of all science students.  The gift was part of a $54 million renovation to the College’s G Wing, which houses the School of Theoretical and Applied Sciences and the School of Social Sciences and Human Services. The Adler gift helped to create a new two and one-half stories center, which connects to the existing building by an overhead walkway.
