From the beginning of the College's history, Dr. Potter and his wife, Laurie, championed programs that increased access to Ramapo for women, veterans, minorities and people with disabilities.
Dr. Laurie Potter, in particular, was instrumental in making sure that persons with disabilities felt welcome at Ramapo and helped launch what is now the Office of Specialized Services. The College's academic buildings were constructed to be accessible to persons with disabilities well before the Americans with Disabilities Act required such measures.
At his death in 2009, friends, family and former colleagues of Dr. Potter contributed to the Founding President George T. Potter and Laurie Potter, PH.D., Endowed Scholarship Fund. The purpose of the fund is to recognize outstanding upperclassmen registered with the Office of Specialized Services who intend to continue their education in graduate school.
