About Us

Sophomores Advancing In Leadership (SAIL) is a Leadership Certificate program specifically designed to help sophomores discover their full leadership potential as they explore their second year at Ramapo. Sophomores will gain leadership experience by attending monthly SAIL seminars, participating in community events, and giving back through community service. Sophomores will have the opportunity to network with established leaders on campus and develop their own leadership credentials.

Participants who successfully complete the SAIL program will be recognized at an end of the year leadership reception. They will receive an official SAIL Certificate and an honor cord which may be worn upon graduation at the commencement ceremony.

The Sophomores Advancing In Leadership (SAIL) Program is advised by Jack Nesmith, Coordinator For Civic Engagement & Student Leadership Programs. Contact Jack at: jnesmith@ramapo.edu
