Jan. 18 – Life at Ramapo in Year One: Faculty Perspective

A Panel Discussion

EPSON MFP image

With first-year faculty and staff:  Jay Wholley, Flavia Alaya, Mitch Kahn, Pam Bischoff, Bev Dunn

Moderator: Charlie Carreras

January 18th at 11:00 am

at Mahwah Museum

The faculty hired to open Ramapo College had a unique role in developing innovative curriculum for an experimental college. Brought in only a few months before the school opened, they had to scramble to develop classes, policies, and governance. When classes began in 1971 the buildings were not all completed and some faculty had to teach at the Nike Missile Base, while construction continued on campus. The panelists will share their stories of teaching, working with students, and overcoming the challenges of Ramapo’s first year.

Free for College students and museum members, $5 for non-members.

Please reserve at programs@mahwahmuseum.org or call 201-512-0099.

For those attending the lecture, the Museum will open for a preview of the A College Comes to Mahwah exhibit from 10:00–11:00 am.  It will also be open from 1-4pm that day.
