The Ray Bateman Center for Student Life and Leadership will be home to flexible learning spaces where students can participate in collaborative learning, information sharing and leadership activities. Resulting from the way information is delivered and the new way students and faculty interact, new learning spaces are required to support this new pedagogy. The design of the Center will encourage and support out-of-classroom learning, as “fixed learning spaces” such as libraries and computer labs become “virtual.” The Center will house the Student Government Association and RVCC’s honor societies as well as associated student clubs and student support administration. The building will transform to adapt to a wide range of learning spaces.
RVCC Capital Campaign
Raritan Valley Community College is launching a $2.75 million capital campaign to support the construction of the Ray Bateman Center for Student Life and Leadership – a facility where students will be able to participate in collaborative learning, information sharing and leadership building skills. The facility will serve as the center for the development of the requisite 21st century skills that will enable our students to transfer to four-year colleges and universities, and encourage them to become productive and global citizens.
Everyone Counts @ RVCC
The Foundation challenged members of the community, as well as students, faculty, administrators and alumni, to raise $25,000, and the RVCC Foundation will match that amount dollar for dollar! With these funds, one of the Bay Walls in the Atrium of the new Ray Bateman Center for Student Life and Leadership will be named in President Casey Crabill’s honor. Her name will be engraved on a plaque to recognize her extraordinary and enduring contributions to Raritan Valley Community College during her seven-year tenure as President.
This particular Bay Wall will showcase one of the College’s core values - - Community Service - - an area that means so much to Casey. Over the years, her unwavering commitment to service has helped the College earn national awards for its Service Learning program. Annually, more than 1,000 RVCC students provide service to 250 non-profit community organizations, annually donating an economic equivalent of more than one million dollars in service to these organizations and their clients.
Casey leaves behind a legacy of excellence! What better way to honor her than to participate in this challenge! Make a gift today of $5, $50, $500, $5,000…or any denomination you choose, and be part of the “Everyone Counts @ RVCC” campaign. Every ONE person counts! Every ONE dollar counts to help us reach the $25,000 goal!
