Govil Cultural Learning Commons Dedication

Thanks to the generosity and vision of Dr. Niraj Govil '85, the foyer to the Middle and Upper School building was recently transformed into the Govil Cultural Learning Commons to showcase our community's ongoing conversations about diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. The space centers around four monitors which feature curated content by students. The first exhibition showcases different classrooms throughout the world.

At the ribbon-cutting dedication event on November 22, Dr. Govil shared, "when discussing the project, I asked Dr. Griffith the question, 'As a nation, what is simultaneously our greatest strength as well as potentially being our greatest weakness?' It's our diversity... The goal of the project is to celebrate diversity through education." During the program, both Dr. Griffith, Head of School, and Dr. Govil explained that Mr. Russell Ranney was a proponent of the civil rights movement in the 1960s and one of the first teachers in Rumson to integrate his classroom. As Dr. Govil mentioned, Mr. Ranney "would be glowing with pride as he saw what started as a one-room school has now blossomed into an incredible learning institution."

We are thankful to Dr. Govil's continued support of Ranney School. If you are interested in getting involved with the Govil Cultural Learnings exhibits, we are accepting submissions of the Ranney community's religious traditions. Send a picture of your family's rituals to

We are looking for volunteers to serve as "Mentors for a Day" between May 31 and June 9. Participants will showcase their professions to current students enrolled in "The Internship Experience"--a course offered through our Maymester program--by either hosting a small group at their business, visiting campus, or meeting virtually. In the past, we’ve had participation from an entrepreneur, veterinarian, dentist, financial advisor, gastroenterologist, and architect, to name a few.
