Ramapo@BCC Established to Help Students & Workforce

Ramapo College and Bergen Community College have strengthened their commitment to provide academic opportunities for students by establishing Ramapo@BCC at Bergen’s Lyndhurst campus.

Ramapo College President Cindy Jebb and Bergen Community College President Eric Friedman signed the memorandum of understanding on Bergen’s Paramus campus during “Ramapo Day at Bergen” in the presence of leaders from both institutions. Working teams from both institutions will design and operationalize the vision for a cohesive and integrated Ramapo@BCC experience. “This partnership continues to strengthen because our two institutions remain committed to building a sustainable, entrepreneurial, and trusted relationship in order to do all that we can for New Jersey’s residents, communities, and employers,” said Jebb.

The schools have had a partnership for more than 10 years and continue to envision how to deliver education in an ever-changing world. Ramapo@BCC builds on the opportunity to focus on advancing social mobility and economic and workforce development in Bergen County. Programming will include undergraduate degree completion as well as partnerships with business and industry to provide certificate programs and workforce development.

“Our two institutions share a commitment to student access, success and affordability. We look forward to serving the needs of Bergen County residents to attain the credentials and degrees they need in today’s ever changing marketplace,” shared Christopher Romano, vice president of strategic enrollment, outreach, and engagement at Ramapo College.

A resource fair, offered by the RCNJ Office of Admissions, was also part of Ramapo Day at Bergen. BCC students were able to connect with Ramapo admissions representatives and learn more about transfer opportunities, majors, and schedule appointments with an onsite academic advisor.
