President’s Parents Council

4 Parents of Ramapo College students from the PPC during move in day 2019Our Mission

The President’s Parents Council (PPC) serves to foster and sustain supportive relationships between Ramapo College and parents.

Our Role

This dynamic group of parents represents a wide variety of Ramapo students and families. Parents become informed about Ramapo College’s programs, services and policies and serve as advocates for the College. They may volunteer with Admissions, Career Services, and other programs of the College as needed. Through their generous support they provide leadership for the College’s Annual Giving program.  Parents also enjoy the opportunity to network at the Council’s meetings held once each semester.

  • An interest in meeting other Ramapo families
  • An active interest in getting involved at Ramapo
