Strategic Planning 2021-2022

Explore the Context. Ignite the Passion. Envision the Environment. Make a Bold Impact. 

There are three key elements to Ramapo College’s 2021-2022 strategic planning process. These elements include:

  • The Future Series
  • Needs Statement Process
  • Campus Master Planning

These three elements will all serve to shape the development of Ramapo College’s next Strategic Plan by:

  • Exploring our Context,
  • Igniting our Passion,
  • Envisioning our Environment, and
  • Ultimately, Making a Bold Impact.

THE FUTURE SERIES: EXPLORE OUR CONTEXT

The Future Series is a series of dynamic summits that will set the conditions for our disciplined work together. Each summit must feature broad participation by our students, faculty, and staff.  In addition, they will include pre-readings and resources, a keynote address, facilitated activities, and opportunities for reflection that are  designed to help us arrive at understandings and to generate ideas that position our liberal arts mission and our public good as a state college as both guide and ballast throughout this process.

NEEDS STATEMENTS PROCESS: IGNITE OUR PASSION

Shaped, in part, by what we learn from The Future Series, running parallel is our Needs Statement Process. The Needs Statement Process will serve to ignite the passion across our community with the opportunity to develop and advocate for centers, programs, initiatives and projects that attract external resources, lead toward a better understanding of issues that affect the lives of citizens in the 21st Century, and that widen and deepen the reputation of our College.

Needs Statements Submissions

With passions ignited, the Needs Statement Process will help us identify priority needs and eventually secure resources from gifts and other potential sources. This is an all hands on deck opportunity to collaborate across disciplines, departments, and divisions.

CAMPUS MASTER PLANNING: ENVISION OUR ENVIRONMENT

The College’s current Facilities Master Plan was completed in 2013 and, in the past several years, much has been achieved through it—the recent completion and opening of the Peter P. Mercer Learning Commons, for example! This year we begin a Campus Master Planning process that will also be shaped by what we learn about the future – our context, by what emerges through the needs statement process – our passion, and in turn, by what we envision together for our campus environment. Stay tuned!  

RAMAPO'S NEXT STRATEGIC PLAN: MAKE A BOLD IMPACT

How Ramapo College engages as a community during this 2021-2022 Strategic Planning Process will determine our future. Through The Future Series, we will explore our context. We will allow those contextual learnings to ignite our passion and inform the proposals that come forward through our Needs Statement Process. And, through our Campus Master Planning, we will envision together an environment in which our learnings, our passions, and our purpose as a public liberal arts college will be nurtured.

What we learn, what drives us, and what grounds us will comprise the ingredients of our next Strategic Plan and we will be poised, together, to make a bold impact
