At Ramapo College of New Jersey, success comes from thinking, learning, creating, and living boldly. As we embark on a new era of challenge and opportunity, we proudly introduce Cindy R. Jebb, Ph.D. as the fifth President of Ramapo College.

On March 5, 2021, the Ramapo College Board of Trustees voted unanimously to appoint Dr. Jebb, Dean of the Academic Board and Professor of Comparative Politics at the United States Military Academy at West Point, and Brigadier General of the United States Army, as the fifth president of Ramapo College of New Jersey.

Dr. Jebb joined the College on July 6, 2021.

“I would like to thank the Chair of the Board of Trustees Susan Vallario, the Board of Trustees, President Mercer, the Search Committee, and the Ramapo community for such a warm and gracious welcome. I am honored, humbled, and thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the Ramapo community,” Dr. Jebb shared. “I am inspired by the College’s mission of education, grounded in the liberal arts, and I deeply admire the passion, commitment, and talents of everyone I have met towards dignity and respect, character-building, and a student-focused powerful learning environment. All that is at stake in our nation and our world puts Ramapo’s mission and values in sharp focus, and I look forward to partnering with students, faculty, staff, alumni and the greater Ramapo community as together we chart the future,” she said.
