Ramapo College: A Dynamic Institution Positioned for the Future
Nine consecutive years of state budget shortfalls in New Jersey higher education have required state colleges and universities to create and adopt new management methods in order to maintain balanced budgets and low debt service. In many cases the cuts have come with very short notice, especially last spring when all New Jersey state colleges and universities were asked to return five percent of their current fiscal year appropriation to the state. Ramapo College of New Jersey is not only maintaining its fiscal viability, but, through skillful management, remains dynamic. A surge in applications from

potential students along with an 87 percent demand from freshmen for on-campus housing, rising SAT scores and class rank, new programs, construction and technology, attest to the vitality of the campus. In the face of nearly a decade of state appropriation cuts, Ramapo has: • achieved record-breaking enrollment of incre a s i n g l y better-prepared students • doubled the number of on-campus residential students • launched cutting-edge new academic programs such as bioinformatics • completed a number of major capital projects • infused state of the art technology throughout the campus. In addition, construction plans for a sports and recreation center, a 300-bed residence hall, a sustainability education center, and a center for international education and entrepreneurship are all on track for completion in 2004.
And, this is in a state that provides no direct support for capital projects. How has Ramapo College managed to enhance its offerings to students and boost its assets while coping with declining and uncertain state revenues? The College’s two-pronged approach combines sound fiscal management with a diversification of the revenue stream. On the fiscal management side, Ramapo works from a

five-year budget model, prioritizing and balancing needs. In controlling costs, the College is focused on reallocating resources, instituting cost-saving measures such as outsourcing
and collaborative purchasing, and reducing spending. On the revenue side, Ramapo has very successfully increased FTEs (full-time equivalents), expanded graduate programs, instituted nominal increases in tuition and fees, and increased grant and donor revenues. When it comes to survival, Ramapo College is a model institution, especially in these times of budgetary restraints. Over the years, the trustees, faculty and staff have led the charge with creative solutions during lean fiscal periods, stood the test of time and are now seasoned fiscal planners. This clearly shows what institutions of higher education can do to both survive and thrive. Everyone has to share in a collective responsibility. Now positioned as very competitive and primarily residential, Ramapo College is enjoying unprecedented interest from potential students. This strong enrollment picture, supported by across-the board achievements in fund raising, creative cost-saving measures and reallocation of resources, has served to provide fiscal stability for the College. As the state wrestles with diminishing revenues and uncertain economic times, Ramapo is successfully working to strengthen its financial base and secure its future. Dr. Rodney D. Smith President ■

Message from the Ramapo College Board of Trustees Promises Fulfilled This last year, which included a visit to the campus by Lech Walesa, the first democratically elected president of Poland, was characterized by numerous superlatives – our highest enrollment, largest number of applicants to the freshman class, best-prepared incoming freshman class, largest number of students living on campus, and largest graduating class. With nearly 5,500 students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs, fall 2002 enrollment is the highest in the history of the College. The trend toward increasing selectivity, now in its eighth year, continued, with students admitted for fall 2002 having an average SAT score of 1140 and ranking in the top 25 percent of their graduating class. Applications to the freshman class were the highest in the history of the College; admission was offered to fewer than half (42 percent) of those applicants. Ramapo students come from all 21 counties in New Jersey as well as 23 states and more than 60 countries. And increasingly, students are choosing to live at Ramapo. Another superlative: In the spring we received approval for New Jersey’s first baccalaureate degree program in bioinformatics, an interdisciplinary major that builds on well-estab-

Along with these important accomplishments, we were happy to welcome and inaugurate Dr. Rodney D. Smith as the College’s third president. Dr. Smith began his presidency at Ramapo in July 2001 and was inaugurated last May. The Inauguration was a very special event in the life of the College, made more so by guests who included Governor James McGreevey, delegates from other colleges and universities, and faculty and staff of Ramapo College and from Hampton University (VA), where Dr. Smith held positions as vice president for planning and dean of the Graduate College. Also attending were Ramapo’s two former presidents, founding President George T. Potter, who served the College from 1969 – 1984, and Adelphi University President Robert A. Scott, who was president of Ramapo from 1985 to 2000. All in all, the year was one of fulfilled promises, promises made to students and their families, to faculty and staff, and to the larger community to provide the very best in public education and to send forth citizens of the world.

Resources that Make the Difference The Ramapo College Foundation added two new programs to its array of activities in 2002: the Parents Advisory Council and the Performing Arts and Dinner Series. The proceeds from these efforts – both in terms of financial revenue and goodwill – helped the Foundation continue to “provide the resources that make the d i ff e rence in Ramapo College’s quest for educational excellence.“ The primary purpose of the Parents Advisory Council is to involve parents of current Ramapo College students more closely in the life of the College. Parents were extremely enthusiastic this first year, organizing a number of successful events and fundraising activities. The group held the College’s first Parents Day, participated in the summer freshman advisory and registration sessions, and organized social events to introduce parents to President Rodney Smith and his wife, Dr. Christina Ramirez-Smith, among others. The Foundation Board created the new Performing Arts and Dinner Series as a way to promote the fantastic events at the Berrie Center and increase unrestricted
programs, scholarships, and faculty projects. • The Annual Appeal exceeded its goal by 14 percent. • A federal appropriation of $800,000 was secured for the Marge Roukema Center for International Education and Entrepreneurship.
fund raising revenue. The Series was great fun, featuring artists as diverse as the Peking Acrobats and the Moscow Boys Choir. Series subscribers were treated to a sumptuous dinner before each performance, and had the opportunity to meet the artists. The Performing Arts and Dinner Series is now the third major event organized by the Ramapo College Foundation
to generate unrestricted revenue for the College. Together the P e rf o rm i n g Arts and Dinner Series, the Distinguished Citizens Dinner, and the Annual Golf Outing raised $246,828 in fiscal year 2002, an 18 percent increase over the previous year. Other highlights of the year included: • Over $2.8 million was received for College

We are particularly pleased with the success of the Annual Fund. In addition to the dramatic increase in the financial goal, the Annual Fund exceeded expectations in two key areas: participation and pledge fulfillment. Excitement is building on and around campus for the proposed Sports and Recreation Center. Foundation Board members and staff worked closely to set the stage for the campaign to raise funds for the Center and other capital needs on campus. At the end of fiscal year 2002, $1,541,826 in gifts and pledges have been received toward these projects. My thanks goes out to all who have contributed, whether it be time, talent, or financial resources, to help assure the continued growth and success of the people and programs of Ramapo College.

Ramapo College has been awarded an $800,000 federal appropriation to build the Marg e Roukema Center for International Education and
Congresswoman Marge Roukema, in recognition of her long-standing support of higher education and international commerce, the Center will build upon the myriad of curricular and extracurricular offerings, and academic and business partnerships that make Ramapo College the strong and dynamic global institution it is today. “In educating students as to the needs of the economy and the importance of study abroad, Ramapo has been an absolute national leader, not only in New Jersey but in the national economy,” states Congresswoman Roukema. “The notion that students will have ‘The Ramapo advantage in the global village,’ is not an exaggeration.” Roukema’s strong support is evident through her continued efforts in Congress to garner additional resources for the Center. “I am working with Congress on getting a second installment for the College in the appropriations process,” states Roukema. Ramapo’s new President, Dr. Rodney Smith, has an ambitious and far-reaching vision for the College, of which the Center will be a key component. “When people talk about Ramapo College I would like for them to picture a United Nations or Harvard School of Government setting, whereby people from all over the world are represented and come here to speak and to learn. I would like to see us expand our summer programs to offer ongoing development institutes for professionals from around the globe. I would like to see us expand and develop relationships with Washington as well as with the United Nations’ member countries so that we can provide some of the training that is needed in their respective regions.

International and intercultural perspectives have been infused within the core general education program, and within many of the individual academic programs. All of the programs within the School of American and International Studies have an international or intercultural emphasis. Major areas of study include American studies, international studies, law and society, political science, literature, and anthropology, as well as East Asian, Judaic, and Latin American studies. Foreign language offerings include Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and Hebrew. The School of Business Administration offers an international business program, and the School of Contemporary Arts emphasizes global and intercultural communication, and the use of satellite technologies. The School of Theoretical and Applied Sciences includes “science in cultural perspective” and offers studies in global environmental issues. The School of Social Science and Human Services has a rich intercultural curriculum including programs in sociology, culture studies, gender studies, Africana studies, gerontology, economics, and environmental studies. The teacher certification program also has a strong global focus. In addition to the undergraduate curriculum, the Master’s of Art in Liberal Studies (MALS) and Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) programs also emphasize global perspectives. The MALS curriculum has a strong international and intercultural emphasis, and has received national recognition for its content. The MBA program offers a study abroad program in Ireland focused on the international business environment. A wide variety of international and intercultural speakers have been to campus. The most prominent in recent years was Lech Walesa, Poland’s first democratically-elected president. A recent, well received lecture series brought experts from a variety of professional backgrounds to discuss global warming and other aspects of sustainability.

overview of some of the activities they have been involved with in recent years illustrates their strong global commitment: an historian was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to South Africa and Oxford; a political scientist led a group of students on an intensive program at the United Nations; a professor of international business lectured in Bosnia and Kosovo; another historian traveled to a university in Ghana to discuss a formal exchange partnership; a botanist launched a study program in Jamaica; an international studies specialist secured a research grant at the Institute of Asia and Africa in Tbilisi; an environmentalist was a guest faculty member at the Environmental Policy Institute in St. Petersburg; and a linguist was part of an educational delegation to South Africa. In addition, a number of professors are leading a New Jersey higher education program for global sustainability; while others have secured a major grant for research and course development in ecological literacy. Indeed, the faculty and staff have a distinguished record in securing national grants. They have received Guggenheim, Fulbright, Social Science Research Council, Ford Foundation, FIPSE, National Endowment for the Humanities, and U.S. Department of State Fellowships to conduct research abroad on almost every continent. In addition, quite a few have received funding from the Ramapo College Foundation. The College continues to attract visiting scholars from around the world who share their expertise with faculty and students through lectures and participation in other campus activities. Scholarsin-residence positions are available for faculty from Shanghai Teachers University in China and the Volgograd State Pedagogical University in Russia; and a new faculty arrangement was recently established with the University of Science and Technology in Ghana. One of the objectives of the College is “to expand the scholars-in-residence program,” according to Susan Rachouh, director of international and intercultural education, “and develop expanded exchange partnerships where Ramapo College exchanges faculty and students with partner institutions abroad.” As faculty and staff undertake research projects, teach and lecture at universities abroad, or attend conferences with an international or intercultural emphasis, Ramapo’s majors, minors, and individual course offerings are enhanced with global perspectives. For example, Dr. William Frech, convener of the international business program, was a recent Fulbright Scholar at the University of Sarajevo, in the former Yugoslavia, where he lectured to undergraduate and graduate faculty and students on western business issues. While in Sarajevo, he co-authored an article with a Bosnian professor. Upon returning to Ramapo, he added modules to the courses he teaches on the economies of post-war societies.

New York City. There are different cultures and ways of looking at the world. It has been one of my best experiences at Ramapo. I’m considering another program before I graduate.” Study Abroad is typically a springboard into other experiential programs, such as International Cooperative Education, or Service Learning. It’s not uncommon for a student to return from a study experience only to start researching other opportunities abroad.
Ramapo actively recruits students from around the world and, as its global reputation grows, so do the number of international students. Currently, there are approximately 255 students representing 60 countries. South Koreans are the single largest group, followed by Kenyans and Bulgarians, Indians and Pakistanis, former Yugoslavians, and Japanese. In recent years, there has been a significant growth in students from Eastern Europe. While most students are from Asia, Europe, and Africa, there are a number of students from Latin America, Canada, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Oceania. The College provides a wide variety of support services for international students including advisement on visa and immigration issues and cultural adaptation workshops.
Experiential Learning With Ramapo’s strong emphasis on experiential learning, the College sponsors Study Abroad, International Cooperative Education, and Service Learning programs, as well as a plethora of intercultural student clubs and organizations.

International Cooperative Education The International Cooperative Education program provides students with the tremendous opportunity of securing professional internships in multinational corporations worldwide. An average of eighteen students participate, annually representing a wide variety of majors. Most positions are paid, which enables students to support themselves while abroad. Ramapo is among a handful of national institutions offering this program. A highly valuable experience, International Cooperative Education puts Ramapo students a notch above most new graduates when looking for employment. “It’s really an Ivy League experience,” says Donna Kauder, director of international cooperative education. “When potential employers see that an applicant has worked abroad professionally, that’s all they want to talk about. Program alums have an edge over other candidates when applying for jobs after graduation.” The countries that students have been placed in include Austria, Germany, Great Britain, France, Belgium, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Russia, the Czech Republic, Holland, and Costa Rica. Opportunities exist in a wide variety of corporations, and placements have been made in positions ranging from communications and computer science, to international marketing, teaching and training, in both profit-making and nonprofit sectors. Among the many companies that have participated are UNESCO in Paris, Merrill Corp of Frankfurt and London, Jaguar in the United Kingdom, INTENSA Language School of Costa Rica, SGL Carbon of Germany, Volvo of Sweden, and Sharp of Canada. Jasmina Bisanovic, an international student from Bosnia, spent a semester in Germany working for SGL Carbon, where she was a marketing assistant. Responsible for conducting a competitive analysis for a new brake product, she initiated the development of a database that the company still uses today for market research. “The

Study Abroad The Study Abroad program takes students to the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Costa Rica, Ireland, Canada, Italy, Jamaica, China, and South Africa. Courses range from the study of language and culture, to tropical ecosystems, political science, art, history, literature, film, and business. There are also field programs to the American west and the American southwest, where national parks and forests are explored and analyzed. Led by Ramapo professors, these two-to-five week programs offer credit-bearing academic courses, excursions, and interaction with the people of the respective countries or regions. Offered during the winter and summer sessions, introductory through advanced classes are available allowing a student to participate in more than one program during his or her college career. Ramapo also has an agreement with Regents College in London, for semester-long study opportunities. Going forward, Study Abroad offerings will be expanded to include more semester programs. In recent years, Ramapo has sent an average of 200 students annually to study abroad. For many, these programs are among the high points of their college careers. Shaun Frame, a junior from Woodbridge, New Jersey, participated in two Study Abroad programs: one in Quebec City and the other in London. “Study Abroad has helped me realize that there’s life outside 11

experience of working in Germany gave me stronger self-confidence and a definite career direction. I now know I want to pursue a career in market research,” said Bisanovic. In addition to working for SGL Carbon, Jasmina was also required to study German at a local school. “When I began my work experience,” Jasmina stated, “I didn’t use German very much in the office because I didn’t think my language skills were good enough. By the last month I was there, I was only using German.” Jasmina plans to pursue a career in marketing and an MBA specializing in international business. The International Cooperative Education program has realized considerable growth and diversity in participants over the past five years. Students from most majors are represented, as is Ramapo’s international student population. This growth is due to the strong institutional support for the program and Ramapo’s commitment to global education. “International Cooperative Education fulfills the College’s mission to educate global citizens within a rich liberal arts tradition,” states Kauder. Service Learning Ramapo’s Service Learning program provides students with short-term international and intercultural experiences in the U.S. and abroad. Nearly 300 students annually participate in courses with service learning components. Since its inception, Service Learning has given students the opportunity for rich intercultural engagement through courses and programs such as the Student Literacy Corps and Alternative Spring Break. The Community Builder’s Coalition, a campus organization, also offers international and intercultural service opportunities. Programs run on weekends, during school breaks, and summer vacation periods.
