Manhattan College is an independent Catholic institution of higher learning, which embraces qualified men and women of all faiths, races and ethnic backgrounds. Established in 1853, the College is founded upon the Lasallian tradition of excellence in teaching, respect for individual dignity, and commitment to social justice inspired by the innovator of modern pedagogy, John Baptist de La Salle.
The mission of Manhattan College is to provide a contemporary, person-centered educational experience characterized by high academic standards, reflection on faith, values and ethics, and lifelong career preparation. This is achieved in two ways: by offering students programs that integrate a broad liberal education with concentration in specific disciplines in the arts and sciences or with professional preparation in business, education and engineering; and by nurturing a caring, pluralistic campus community.
The learning experience at Manhattan College is enriched by postgraduate professional programs and by capitalizing on its location on the edge of the cultural center and global marketplace that is New York City.
There are some 40 major fields of study within five undergraduate schools, guided by an internationally recognized faculty, sought-after leaders and real-world consultants in their fields, 96 percent of whom hold doctoral degrees. There are also opportunities to study abroad in more than 30 countries.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
