We’re a vibrant, close-knit community where academic curiosity and creativity flourish, and where dedicated faculty mentor and encourage students to expand their perspectives and hone their skills of critical thinking and communication.
Our mission is to educate a socially and economically diverse student body by fostering intellectual achievement and personal growth and by developing an awareness of social, political, cultural, and ethical issues. We offer excellent programs in the liberal arts and substantial pre-professional preparation. Central to these efforts is the particular attention given to you: the individual student.
Our distinctive location in one of the most diverse and exciting cities in the world provides an on-campus environment of energy and enthusiasm. It also enables us to offer our students access to outstanding externships and internships, community-service and service-learning opportunities, and the many historical and cultural resources of New York City.
