At the heart of Marymount Manhattan College is New York City creativity

Like the city we call home, MMC is famous for its offerings in arts and culture.

But like everything else at MMC, our New York City creativity goes well beyond the expected: it infuses everything we do. Our students aren’t lost in some giant lecture hall. Instead, they’re figuring out new ways to help local kids who have speech impediments. They’re choreographing their own dance pieces that weave together ideas of identity, language, and belonging. They’re exploring how the sounds of the city affect their classmates’ moods. They’re designing imaginative chemistry experiments to answer questions about the world in which we live.

New York City creativity. It’s at the heart of the social movements our students ignite and the social problems they take on—like food insecurity, racial discrimination, poverty, and homelessness.

At Marymount Manhattan, we believe that if we nurture our students’ creativity, they will have the ability to find purpose, and adapt and grow throughout their lives. We also believe that through creative problem-solving, they will achieve our founders’ vision—of a just and equitable society in which each of us belongs because we’re different, and each of us makes an impact because we must.

What We’re About

Graduation from MMC past
From our beginnings as a two-year women’s college, we’ve transformed significantly and evolved to meet the changing needs of our students. But one thing has remained constant: our commitment to providing higher education for diverse populations.
Honors Day 2018
We want to see our students rise to their creative and intellectual potential, develop their own sense of personal growth, and chart their unique path to professional success. Equally important, we want them to be engaged members of their communities.

We embrace our responsibility to create a welcoming and accessible community built on our core values and beliefs. Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan, along with the President’s Task Force for Racial Equity and the Advisory Committee for Inclusivity, have set specific goals for addressing issues of inequality.
  • The amazing classes taught by brilliant professors gave me the knowledge needed to step into a full-time role at a company. Furthermore, the fact that the college was in NYC made me independent, courageous, and open-minded.
