RAM Program


The Research Aligned Mentorship (RAM) program initially launched in 2015 with a $3 million First in the World FIPSE Grant from the United States Department of Education. Each year up to 250 first-time, first-year undergraduate students are randomly selected for the program. To be eligible students must qualify as low income, be a first-generation college student, or be a member of a historically minoritized community.

By participating in the program, students engage in a variety of interventions that include: (1) curricular innovation (first-year seminars, collaborative learning workshops, research seminars), (2) mentored research experiences on and off campus, (3) holistic advising and mentoring, and (4) community-building programs and service learning experiences. The RAM Program has proven the effectiveness of these interventions through its impressive retention and 4-year graduation rates at Farmingdale State College.
