  Message from the Provost

Ramapo College is New Jersey’s Public Liberal Arts College, dedicated to providing students a strong foundation for a lifetime of achievement. The College is committed to academic excellence through interdisciplinary and experiential learning, and international and intercultural understanding. Ramapo emphasizes teaching and individual attention to all students. We promote diversity, inclusiveness, sustainability, student engagement, and community involvement. 

The Division of Academic Affairs at Ramapo College is fully committed to and focused on providing high-quality and engaging learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom to our undergraduate and graduate students. Our academic programs and extracurricular events are designed to develop knowledge, skills, attributes, and abilities, as well as new ways of thinking, acting, and engaging, through interdisciplinary and experiential learning and international and intercultural understanding opportunities. We embrace diverse perspectives and approaches and are proud to offer a number of courses and programs that emphasize other cultures, race relations, social justice, and more.

Two of the most important outcomes of obtaining a Ramapo College education are becoming intellectually grounded in the liberal arts and being able to integrate in-depth, discipline-specific knowledge with a commitment to social and cultural skills and values necessary to be productive citizens in a global community and to engage in life-long learning. These traits serve our students well in their academic, professional, and personal lives during their studies at Ramapo and post-graduation.

Recognizing that faculty scholarship is a necessary prerequisite for academic excellence and that student learning experiences are enhanced by the greater faculty expertise, the Division of Academic Affairs coordinates support for the professional development of faculty, which is designed to enhance the quality of teaching, learning, and scholarship at Ramapo College.

As the Vice President for Academic Affairs, I encourage all students, faculty, and staff to engage in opportunities to continually learn, expand one’s horizons, and participate in the exchange of ideas. Doing so will allow Ramapo College to contribute to the greater good in our community and society at large. I am grateful and honored to serve as Ramapo’s Interim Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs and look forward to learning from and engaging and growing with each of you as our paths cross on campus and virtually.


Dr. Susan Gaulden
