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.
