from Britain’s Top Management
Programme Tour Ramapo College To
Learn How To Model Administrative Practices
College of New Jersey
The Board Room, located in the Mansion
9 a.m. – 4:45 p.m.
Ramapo College will host a study tour of graduates from Britain’s Top Management Programme, the equivalent of the ACE Fellows Program and Harvard’s Institute for Educational Management.
As Britain’s higher education system undergoes radical changes to a fee-structured system, the group is interested in how things work, why they work, what’s cutting edge and how U.S. institutions handle the issues that are on the horizon for British universities.
Participants are at the level right below vice chancellor, the British equivalent of a U.S. president/chancellor at a college or university. The goals of the visit are to explore alternative perspectives on policy issues: widening participation and variable fee charges and bursaries, sharing experiences of key leadership and management development challenges, organizing and delivering services and establishing and extending networks of senior staff.
The four to six visitors making the trip will also tour City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center, Fordham University and SUNY Purchase.
If you would like to sit in on the meetings, interview any of the British guests or senior administrative personnel representing Ramapo College, please contact Bonnie Franklin, assistant vice president for communications and public affairs, at 201.684-6844 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
