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.
Dear Ramapo College Students and Faculty,
As we continually adjust to the many changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, I know we all look forward to being back together on our beautiful campus. To our new incoming students, we are very eager to meet you in person!
In the meantime, please know that the Ramapo College Return-to-Campus Task Force is proactively, responsibly, and inclusively planning for a number of different Fall 2020 scenarios so that we are ready and prepared to adapt to a variety of circumstances. The College continues to follow and make decisions based on the guidance of state and local health officials, the CDC, and other relevant organizations and agencies. While we hope to be back on campus in the Fall, our primary concern remains to be the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. A decision on how the Fall 2020 semester will be conducted will be communicated to everyone by mid-July.
Ramapo continues to live its mission. We are committed to offering high-quality education no matter how the Fall 2020 semester unfolds and to ensuring that our students continue to make academic progress, stay on track to achieve their academic goals, and ultimately graduate from Ramapo College.
Over these summer months, I encourage you to regularly check the College’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information & Updates website www.ramapo.edu/health/coronavirus-covid-19, which contains much helpful and practical information.
In addition, please be aware of the many resources available to you at Ramapo College, some of which are listed below.
I am grateful for and proud of the creativity, resilience, and dedication demonstrated by our entire campus community. Please be well, stay healthy, and take good care.
Dr. Susan Gaulden
Interim Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs
