The Gift of Giving: How Donors’ Vision Supports Academic Excellence PAGE 4


SPRING 2010 | ANNUAL REPORT 2009

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

COLLEGE EXECUTIVE OFFICERS Peter P. Mercer, Ph.D. President

As President, I am grateful that we have not only these inspirational stories to tell, but countless others that continue to strengthen our vision for Ramapo. As we reflect on 2009, I offer my profound thanks to all those who support Ramapo College.

Recently, our community received word that Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine listed Ramapo College of New Jersey as among the “100 Best Values in Public Colleges for 2009.” This is the fifth consecutive year Ramapo College has been included, so inclusion in the list was no surprise, but I believe that our significant advancement on the list, from #66 to #49 is a clear validation of the tremendous work done by our faculty, staff, administration, Board of Trustees and Board of Governors. Many of our students make great sacrifices to be here and, together with the senior administration under the guidance of the Board of Trustees and with the support of the Foundation, we will prudently and strategically allocate resources that allow us not only to sustain the value of a Ramapo degree but continue to enhance it.

Of course, as we enter 2010, the economic challenges and uncertainties facing New Jersey and the nation continue to affect us all. In these turbulent times, it is imperative that alumni, parents, friends, our faculty, staff, students and community partners promote the value of a Ramapo liberal arts education. As we proceed in this New Year, which marks the beginning of our fifth decade as a college, let us continue to work together to further our strategic goals of enhancing academic excellence, investing in the future and enriching college life and community presence.

During the recent holiday season there was particular emphasis on the notion of giving. Nowhere is that concept more evident than at Ramapo College. Yet, instead of one “season of giving” occurring in December, Ramapo benefits from the generosity of our constituents all year round. In the pages that follow, you will find remarkable stories that epitomize the giving that makes a tangible difference in the lives of our students and of those in the surrounding community.

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDATION BOARD OF GOVERNORS

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES CHAIRMAN

MESSAGE FROM THE FOUNDATION BOARD OF GOVERNORS CHAIRMAN

The Reverend Dr. Vernon C. Walton

Mr. Robert Tillsley

As I look back over 2009, and my two years as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Ramapo College, I am immensely proud of the work done to advance the College on behalf of current and future students. It has been an honor to work with my colleagues on the Board, our administrators, faculty and staff, whose commitment to higher education is inspiring.

THE REVEREND DR. VERNON C. WALTON

Chair, Ramapo College Board of Trustees

As we celebrate our 40th year, it is gratifying to know that, with our new Strategic Plan, the College has a solid foundation for growth in the next 40 years. In our quest to be the premier public college in the region, we are focused on enhancing academic

excellence, investing in our future and enriching college life and community presence.

Already, we have made strides. The academic profile of our students continues to improve. Last year the average SAT score for applicants rose by 20 points while the average SAT score of our admitted students was 1,157. Our graduates continue to be known for their ability to think critically and analytically and speak and write effectively. These skills are the foundation of a liberal arts education and will serve them and our country well in the increasingly global and competitive world they will enter.

Further, recognizing the changing demographics in the state and region, the Board of Trustees also approved a Strategic Enrollment Management Plan. This five-year blueprint will ensure that the quality of our students and the value of a Ramapo College degree increase while simultaneously safeguarding our commitment to accessibility. In all areas of recruitment we have worked diligently to make certain that Ramapo College reflects the diversity and richness that is the state of New Jersey.

With the expiration of my term as Chair, I cannot think of a more appropriate successor than one of our very own graduates: A.J. Sabath ’93, who holds a degree in social work from Ramapo College. His passion for the institution is unparalleled. It is with great anticipation that I look forward to serving on the Board’s Executive Committee and to furthering the tradition of 40 years of academic excellence at Ramapo College.

unrestricted revenue. Also during this challenging time, the endowment enjoyed a three year growth in principal of 88.3%.

We have recruited new faculty who are rising stars from some of the best universities and colleges in the nation with outstanding academic backgrounds and well-developed research agendas. In the past year, our community has welcomed 24 of them. Our ability to attract these new scholars reinforces not only our commitment to academic excellence, but the intellectual climate of our campus.

ROBERT TILLSLEY

Chair, Ramapo College Foundation Board of Governors

Thanks to the continued generosity of Richard and Millicent Anisfield, the fifth floor of the Anisfield School of Business was completed and now boasts a state of the art electronic trading center for use by business students so they can experience the actual dynamics of high-speed financial trading. The remainder of the fifth floor offers seminar spaces and classrooms. It is energizing to have the participation of alumni in the efforts to advance

the name and reputation of Ramapo College. Alumni meetings are planned for Washington, D.C., Arizona and California. Members of the alumni can be found in every profession, in public service, the not for profit world and as entrepreneurs founding and operating their own businesses. Members of the College’s early years have re-discovered Ramapo College and have come back to experience the expanded campus. They are participating in the Foundation’s planned giving programs that provide a series of ways to help the College through annuities and bequests.

The generosity shown to Ramapo College by all of the donors, alumni, Friends of Ramapo and the faculty and administrative staff is inspiring to me and the members of the Board of Governors. On their behalf, I thank everyone who has made a commitment to the College. We appreciate your generosity.

The Ramapo College Foundation has grown along side of Ramapo College. As the College has achieved national recognition for its academic and co-curricular programs, the Foundation and its Board of Governors have been involved in the development of new campus buildings, institutes and centers. In 2009, 265 student scholarships and faculty grants were awarded, a 29% increase. Donors and students were recognized at the Foundation’s annual scholarship dinner, which was attended by more than 300 participants. Due to the careful management of the Foundation’s Investment Committee all named scholarships were awarded last year from endowment reserves of

public administration. At the time, Ramapo was a magnet for adult students returning to the classroom, including a large contingent of Vietnam veterans. Dugan especially remembers spending time in the Women’s Center, where she heard classmates recall their struggles to balance family, work, and school. After graduating in 1980, Dugan volunteered to work in the court system on behalf of women being assisted by a domestic violence shelter. Her experiences inspired in Dugan a particular compassion for women in academe, and she hopes her latest gift to Ramapo will encourage more women to pursue careers in the sciences.

HOW DONORS’ VISION SUPPORTS ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE By Christopher Hann Inside a science laboratory in G Wing, Marion Dugan has gathered with a group of visitors to hear Assistant Professor of Engineering Physics Ozgur Dogru explain his latest research in the field of laser spectroscopy. Although Dugan professes no particular expertise in the field, the professor’s research might not be possible without her.

Last year Dugan and her husband, Pat, donated $200,000 to Ramapo, her alma mater. Half the gift will create an endowed scholarship in the Community Scholars Program. The other half is paying for equipment in three engineering physics labs, some of which Physics Professor Philip Anderson likens to “an expensive set of Legos.” Dugan has been invited to tour the lab to witness for herself the fruits of her generosity. As the tour comes to a close, Anderson addresses her directly. “Your contribution,” he says, “has made a major impact.”

Marion Dugan’s gift to Ramapo can be traced to her decision to enroll in the newly opened College in the 1970s. She was a 30something wife and mother of two living in Mahwah. She had two years of college behind her, and she wanted to pursue a degree in

Need, in fact, drives much of Ramapo’s giving. Cathy Davey says her job often involves matching the College’s needs with the philanthropic wishes of prospective donors. “We have a College-wide strategic plan that has four principles to it,” Davey says. “And then I take the principles from the strategic plan and I say, ‘What can I get funded?’ And then, ‘Who do we have that has the capability and the willingness to say yes?’ And then we prioritize based on the College’s priorities.”

the Foundation's endowment, which has recouped its losses from the latest swoon in the economy and is again turning a profit. The gifts come from corporations such as TD Bank, whose $20,000 grant provides tutoring for nursing students; from research and philanthropic institutions such as the National Science Foundation, which provides up to $20,000 to Ramapo students who agree to

That, of course, was the whole idea.

Each year Ramapo receives gifts large and small that pay for scholarships, tutoring, equipment, campus events, travel to professional conferences, and myriad other purposes aimed at enhancing the academic experience for its nearly 6,000 students and more than 200 faculty members. The collective largesse has helped boost to $8.7 million

It has already helped Assistant Professor of Physics Caroline Brisson open an optics lab and Professor of Physics Daniela Buna—who hopes to organize regular “women’s nights” in the physics lab—set up an advanced physics research and teaching lab. The Dugans’ gift paid for equipment that Dogru uses to detect minute concentrations of chemical substances, such as carbon, in a variety of solutions. The research is essential for pharmaceutical companies, Dogru says, which use it to trace the impact of a given drug in the human body.

Sometimes a lead for a gift simply comes out of the blue, as was the case with Gregory Bukstein. In 1997 Bukstein, on the advice of the Asia Institute in New York, contacted Ramapo. He wanted to donate an art collection that his brother, André Pascal, had assembled from his many travels throughout Asia. After 10 years of cultivation and friendship, the collection – some 300 pieces in all, estimated to be worth more than $1 million – and a $375,000 endowment were bequeated to the College. Cathy Davey, the College’s vice president for institutional advancement and the executive director of the Ramapo Foundation, says she expects pieces from the collection to be displayed later this year, with major exhibits scheduled at the Pascal Gallery in the Berrie Center.

The Dugans’ gift, for example, was one of several made recently in response to Ramapo’s concerted push to upgrade its science facilities. One such gift, aimed at helping at-risk students in the College’s highly competitive Nursing program, came from the TD Charitable Foundation. Davey says she knew the foundation had a policy not to fund capital projects. “So I had to look at what they were interested in, and they were very interested in serving the inner cities,” Davey says. “Well, one of the ways we serve the inner cities is by sending back our best and brightest nurses and social work students. I have to look at the philanthropic priorities of the organization with the academic priorities of the College.”

It turns out Ramapo’s nursing faculty already had identified a disturbing trend: minority nursing students, many from poor families, were leaving school before graduating at a rate far higher than their white counterparts. Nursing students often need particular help in their junior year, when they take their first

“This, in our minds, would be an immediate impact for a lot of students, not just for one or two scholarship people,” Dugan says of the new lab equipment. “It turned out that the labs were in great need.”

He encouraged the students there was a way to use science to either start a business or improve a business. There’s actually a way to make it into the corporate world as a scientist.”

clinical course, Foundations of Nursing. To stay in the nursing program, says Kathleen Burke, the assistant dean of nursing, students have to pass the course.

Last fall Ramapo used a $20,000 grant from the TD Charitable Foundation to hire three tutors to help junior and senior nursing students, especially students at-risk of dropping out. The tutoring was optional, but Burke says the faculty strongly encouraged any student identified as being at-risk. The results, she says, have been dramatic. “There’s a direct correlation with the success of the students this semester and their presence at this tutoring,” she says. “It has greatly enabled us to offer those necessary support services for students.”

Another gift to Ramapo’s Science Program came from Michael Reedy, owner of Reedy International in Keyport, New Jersey, makers of technologically-advanced plastics. Last April, a month before Reedy’s daughter, Kristen, graduated from Ramapo with a degree in Art, Reedy provided $5,000 to help fund the annual Student Research Symposium sponsored by the School of Theoretical and Applied Science. Thirty students presented posters and talks on research topics such as “Alkaline pH Prevents Voltage Reversal in Yeast Fermenta-

Ramapo science and math students can also apply for the Robert Noyce Scholarship Program, which is administered by the National Science Foundation. Students who meet the academic criteria and agree to teach science or math in poor school districts for two years receive $10,000. Those who agree to teach for four years receive $20,000. Each year seven Ramapo students are chosen for the Noyce scholarships, named for the inventor of the integrated computer chip. “It’s a very important program,” says Ron Kase, Ramapo’s associate vice president for institutional advancement and sponsored programs. “Math and science teachers are so sought after that the better schools just pick them up as soon as they graduate.”

Murray Sabrin says his gift to Ramapo is a payback to the school that gave him the career he always wanted as a college professor. The Sabrin Center for Business Excellence will provide a forum for business executives to meet with students to discuss “how the business world works,” Sabrin says. “I’m a strong proponent of lifetime learning and experiential learning. The classroom is for students to learn basic skills in all the disciplines. One of the missions we have is to see how business people use these skills to create great businesses. Hopefully our students will be our next generation of business leaders. What I hope the center does is provide motivation for others, whether inside the College or outside the College, to help support Ramapo College.”

Professor Murray Sabrin, Ramapo College faculty member and his wife Florence Sabrin, Distinguished Citizens Committee member, attended the 27th Annual Distinguished Citizens Dinner.

That, of course, is the whole idea. Cathy Davey says the best kind of philanthropy is that which inspires others to give. “That’s why we promote a wonderful gift,” Davey says. “The greatest compliment is that somebody emulates it. And that’s what good philanthropy is all about.”

Feature surprised to hear that plastics were environmentally friendly,” Anne Marie Reedy says of her husband’s presentation. “He gave them a lot of facts that even some of the professors were surprised to hear. He encouraged the students there was a way to use science to either start a business or improve a business. There’s actually a way to make it into the corporate world as a scientist.”

clinical course, Foundations of Nursing. To stay in the nursing program, says Kathleen Burke, the assistant dean of nursing, students have to pass the course.

Last fall Ramapo used a $20,000 grant from the TD Charitable Foundation to hire three tutors to help junior and senior nursing students, especially students at-risk of dropping out. The tutoring was optional, but Burke says the faculty strongly encouraged any student identified as being at-risk. The results, she says, have been dramatic. “There’s a direct correlation with the success of the students this semester and their presence at this tutoring,” she says. “It has greatly enabled us to offer those necessary support services for students.”

Another gift to Ramapo’s Science Program came from Michael Reedy, owner of Reedy International in Keyport, New Jersey, makers of technologically-advanced plastics. Last April, a month before Reedy’s daughter, Kristen, graduated from Ramapo with a degree in Art, Reedy provided $5,000 to help fund the annual Student Research Symposium sponsored by the School of Theoretical and Applied Science. Thirty students presented posters and talks on research topics such as “Alkaline pH Prevents Voltage Reversal in Yeast Fermenta-

TD Bank Summer Concerts Series

With the support of wonderful sponsors and community partners, concerts have become a summer tradition at Ramapo College. Families from across the region come to Ramapo to listen to great music, greet friends and enjoy a picnic on the Bandshell lawn on Thursday evenings each July. A hit with concert goers, a fireworks display is featured at the first concert each summer. “One of the best kept secrets in Bergen County is the Summer Concert Series at Ramapo College each July. We can all enjoy different styles of music as we sit on the knoll of the bandshell lawn and feel like one big happy community under the stars!”

A Time to Reflect with Florence Thomases

Florence Thomases, a member of the first Ramapo College Board of Trustees, and her late husband, Fred Thomases, have provided leadership and support to the College since its 1969 inception. Florence Thomases was instrumental in choosing a site for the College, determining its academic philosophy and naming its first president, Dr. George Potter. The Thomases Commons, located in The Village residence hall, containing office, conference and other facilities, was dedicated in 2003. The generous contributions of Florence and Fred Thomases have supported countless students and faculty through endowed scholarships and grants for research and teaching excellence. Here, Mrs. Thomases reflects on her association with the College.

How did you become involved with the early days of Ramapo College?

I, and many others helped to build the College. When Ralph Dungan, New Jersey’s first Chancellor of Higher Education, asked me to serve on Ramapo’s board, I resisted. I was about to embark on a project for Third World children. Chancellor Dungan told me there were many poor young people in New Jersey that needed my attention, and that the new State College of North Jersey, which became Ramapo College, would be an exciting and challenging project. He was correct because in the early days there were so many issues we had to contend with.

What are your most vivid recollections of Ramapo?

The actual building of the College…to acquire the land, design the facility and to welcome the first students. We wanted to make sure that the buildings were barrier-free. I believe we were the first college to do that. The College had temporary offices and class-

rooms on Route 17 in Saddle River in an old red brick building. It was fun to visit with the original staff who shared the first floor, which was one big room with desks everywhere.

Ramapo College has changed physically and academically. How do you feel about these changes?

The programs have been enriched since the College was founded. With all of the changes, it will be bigger and better known. However, I hope it keeps the spirit of a small college, which was what we had in mind. I graduated from Hunter College in New York when it was a women’s college. It felt like a small college because everyone knew each other. I enjoyed that.

When you describe Ramapo to friends and family, how do you characterize the College? I like to tell them about the opportunities available to low-income students. From the beginning, I was an advocate for prospective students who had little opportunity to enter higher education. Some

Founding Board Member, Florence Thomases

of the original trustees wanted to place the College in Hackensack, an urban area, because they felt if Ramapo was located in the country it would be difficult to get to without a car. But then the Birch estate became available and all of us were impressed by its beauty. We realized that it was a perfect place for a college campus.

What value do you think Ramapo College presents to the citizens of New Jersey?

The College presents educational opportunities that did not exist before the College was built. As a liberal arts graduate, I have great affection for that kind of education. From the beginning, I tried to make sure that Ramapo College would be a liberal arts college. The founding faculty agreed with this mission as well. Many of the original members of the faculty had only recently finished graduate school. Ramapo offered them their first teaching position, and they loved the opportunity to help form a new liberal arts college.

CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS BOOST EMPLOYABILITY

Datebook

By Rosa Diaz-Mulryan, Assistant Vice President, Center for Innovative and Professional Learning Read a daily newspaper or turn on a news broadcast and you can’t escape hearing how the state of the economy and persistent unemployment has many American workers searching for new careers that might sustain them during a time of job insecurity. This has many job seekers searching for new educational opportunities and training that may expand their employability in the current job market.

At Ramapo College, we are seeing a 43 percent rise in students pursuing certificate programs. With many being able to be completed in one summer or within one year, the College’s new certificate programs are seen as fast-track ways to build one’s credentials, pursue a promotion or enter an entirely new career. For working adults, some choose to complete the programs at a slower pace, earning a certificate in one to three years. Ramapo offers certificate programs in Business Essentials, Web Development, Middle School Endorsement, Yoga Studies and Yoga Teacher Certification.

The Bergen Record recently reported on the enrollment growth in certificate programs throughout the region. Lindsay Goldstein, a communications major at Ramapo who is also enrolled in the Business Essentials Certificate program, said in the article, ‘My family has a business background, so I’ve always been interested in business. I wanted to open some horizons outside the communications field. This program has helped me see how many options there are.’ She now plans to work in marketing and sales and will apply to a business graduate school after graduation from Ramapo.

ing student might want to go into management someday. We're also finding adult learners who want to return to college are interested. Their jobs might change, or they might want to pursue a more business-oriented position. People are taking a good look around and saying the more credentials and more substantive learning they can acquire, the better.’ The Business Essentials Certificate program provides a broad foundation in fundamental business concepts in the areas of accounting, marketing and management principles. Students may customize a certificate by choosing to take business law, information technology or corporate finance. Certificate completion requirements include the above four courses plus two personal effectiveness seminars. The program can easily be completed over two summers. The Web Development Certificate program is taught fully online making it convenient for those who are employed to pursue this additional technical knowledge that is highly desirable in the marketplace. Students learn the essential components of modern Web development – the Internet standards and technologies, databases, frameworks, and programming. Certificate requirements include prerequisite knowledge of programming concepts and three online courses.

The Middle School Teacher Certification program is open to teacher education students seeking elementary education certification and current elementary teachers interested

Ramapo began launching new certificate programs in 2008. The Business Essentials Certificate program was the first. In an interview, President Peter P. Mercer said, ‘The program is interesting for our own students, since a nurs-

in the New Jersey Middle School endorsement. School districts welcome middle school certified elementary teachers because they afford the districts flexibility in placing and retaining teachers as the population needs of their districts change. Certification requirements include an adolescent psychology course, two summer seminars and three courses in one content area (language arts, social studies, mathematics or science). The Certificate may be earned in as little as one summer. The 100-hour Yoga Studies Certificate program is for adult learners and highly motivated college students who wish to explore the theory and practice of yoga in an enriched academic context. The program is also for those who are already regular practitioners of yoga asana who would like to explore the deeper, more contemplative, ethical, and philosophical dimensions of yoga. Program requirements include completion of the psychology of yoga course, 45 hours of yoga practice and at least three non-credit weekend experiential workshops.

The 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification is for adult learners and highly motivated college students who are called to share their knowledge

with others as teachers of yoga (or just deepen their own personal practice). The program requirements include programs/practice in advanced asana sequencing, yoga philosophy and contemplation, yoga pedagogy, Sanskrit terminology, classic yoga literature, yoga-oriented anatomy and physiology, and a capstone experience involving a supervised research project. The majority of the course requirements are offered as intensive weekend programs and as a summer intensive. Weekend workshops are also open to non-certificate program students and community members.

Certificate programs at Ramapo are administered through the new Center for Innovative and Professional Learning (CIPL). Founded in Fall 2007, the Center also offers youth and pre-college summer programs, SAT Prep, CPR, professional development courses (e.g., nursing contact hour programs), employee development grant opportunities for businesses, and numerous workshops of interest to the community.

CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS BOOST EMPLOYABILITY

Datebook

By Rosa Diaz-Mulryan, Assistant Vice President, Center for Innovative and Professional Learning Read a daily newspaper or turn on a news broadcast and you can’t escape hearing how the state of the economy and persistent unemployment has many American workers searching for new careers that might sustain them during a time of job insecurity. This has many job seekers searching for new educational opportunities and training that may expand their employability in the current job market.

At Ramapo College, we are seeing a 43 percent rise in students pursuing certificate programs. With many being able to be completed in one summer or within one year, the College’s new certificate programs are seen as fast-track ways to build one’s credentials, pursue a promotion or enter an entirely new career. For working adults, some choose to complete the programs at a slower pace, earning a certificate in one to three years. Ramapo offers certificate programs in Business Essentials, Web Development, Middle School Endorsement, Yoga Studies and Yoga Teacher Certification.

The Bergen Record recently reported on the enrollment growth in certificate programs throughout the region. Lindsay Goldstein, a communications major at Ramapo who is also enrolled in the Business Essentials Certificate program, said in the article, ‘My family has a business background, so I’ve always been interested in business. I wanted to open some horizons outside the communications field. This program has helped me see how many options there are.’ She now plans to work in marketing and sales and will apply to a business graduate school after graduation from Ramapo.

ing student might want to go into management someday. We're also finding adult learners who want to return to college are interested. Their jobs might change, or they might want to pursue a more business-oriented position. People are taking a good look around and saying the more credentials and more substantive learning they can acquire, the better.’ The Business Essentials Certificate program provides a broad foundation in fundamental business concepts in the areas of accounting, marketing and management principles. Students may customize a certificate by choosing to take business law, information technology or corporate finance. Certificate completion requirements include the above four courses plus two personal effectiveness seminars. The program can easily be completed over two summers. The Web Development Certificate program is taught fully online making it convenient for those who are employed to pursue this additional technical knowledge that is highly desirable in the marketplace. Students learn the essential components of modern Web development – the Internet standards and technologies, databases, frameworks, and programming. Certificate requirements include prerequisite knowledge of programming concepts and three online courses.

The Middle School Teacher Certification program is open to teacher education students seeking elementary education certification and current elementary teachers interested

Ramapo began launching new certificate programs in 2008. The Business Essentials Certificate program was the first. In an interview, President Peter P. Mercer said, ‘The program is interesting for our own students, since a nurs-

in the New Jersey Middle School endorsement. School districts welcome middle school certified elementary teachers because they afford the districts flexibility in placing and retaining teachers as the population needs of their districts change. Certification requirements include an adolescent psychology course, two summer seminars and three courses in one content area (language arts, social studies, mathematics or science). The Certificate may be earned in as little as one summer. The 100-hour Yoga Studies Certificate program is for adult learners and highly motivated college students who wish to explore the theory and practice of yoga in an enriched academic context. The program is also for those who are already regular practitioners of yoga asana who would like to explore the deeper, more contemplative, ethical, and philosophical dimensions of yoga. Program requirements include completion of the psychology of yoga course, 45 hours of yoga practice and at least three non-credit weekend experiential workshops.

The 200-hour Yoga Teacher Certification is for adult learners and highly motivated college students who are called to share their knowledge

with others as teachers of yoga (or just deepen their own personal practice). The program requirements include programs/practice in advanced asana sequencing, yoga philosophy and contemplation, yoga pedagogy, Sanskrit terminology, classic yoga literature, yoga-oriented anatomy and physiology, and a capstone experience involving a supervised research project. The majority of the course requirements are offered as intensive weekend programs and as a summer intensive. Weekend workshops are also open to non-certificate program students and community members.

Certificate programs at Ramapo are administered through the new Center for Innovative and Professional Learning (CIPL). Founded in Fall 2007, the Center also offers youth and pre-college summer programs, SAT Prep, CPR, professional development courses (e.g., nursing contact hour programs), employee development grant opportunities for businesses, and numerous workshops of interest to the community.
