Ramapo College Strategic Plan: Boldly Ascending 2023-2029 (pdf)

Ramapo College Strategic Plan 2023-2029


Ramapo’s Strategic Plan, Boldly Ascending 2023-2029, provides us with direction and priorities. Our proximate ends are the plan’s goals: Academic Excellence and Student Success; Inclusive Community; and Agile Stewardship. However, let’s ascend toward our aspirational ends: that is making our mark for graduating empathetic problem solvers, ethical change agents, and responsible leaders who make a positive impact on the human condition and thrive in a changing world.

Ramapo College’s strategic planning process included four key elements: Planning Forums, The Future Series, Needs Statement Process, and Campus Facilities Planning. These four elements all shaped the development of Boldly Ascending by: exploring our context, igniting our passion, envisioning our environment, and ultimately, making a bold impact.

The Comprehensive Academic Plan (CAP) moves the Campus forward by serving as a holistic plan to advance teaching, learning, research, scholarship and creative activity and meet the promise of Boldly Ascending. With innovation at its core, and in consideration of our resources as a public institution, the plan provides a high-level overview of guiding principles that then filter into objectives and tasks that guide future action.
