The Multicultural Center

The Multicultural Center officially opened its doors on February 22, 2023, nearly three years after a Multicultural Center Exploratory Committee was established through the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Compliance. The goal of the Multicultural Center is to support the College’s traditionally underrepresented students from all cultural backgrounds, and to promote productive, intercultural discourse among all students, faculty and staff at Ramapo.


Multicultural Center Mission Statement

The Multicultural Center’s Mission:

To cultivate cultural learning and appreciation within an inclusive, intersectional environment that promotes academic excellence, intellectual engagement, social justice and advocacy.
