Ramapo College of New Jersey’s 2021 Presidential Search
Thanks in large part to the range of thoughtful stakeholder input throughout the past 15+ months of the College’s presidential search process, Ramapo College generated an informative needs assessment, advanced a compelling position profile, and launched a strategic recruitment strategy to help attract its next president.
Our recruitment effort yielded a diverse pool of 103 candidates. The 14 voting members of the Search Committee were tasked with evaluating all 103 applicants against the leadership opportunities, qualifications, and preferred attributes noted in the position profile. Following the evaluations, the Search Committee identified an unranked list of semifinalists. During the month of November 2020, the Search Committee conducted nine virtual semifinalist interviews.
In December 2020, the Search Committee met and unanimously and enthusiastically recommended four finalists*, unranked, to the Board of Trustees for consideration as Ramapo College’s fifth president.
*On 2/2/21 the College was advised that one of the four finalists withdrew from the search.
