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.

Everyone in the MMC community has their own way of spending the Thursday of Fall Break. As a whole, the five days of the break give us a chance to relax and recharge—whether by spending time with family and friends or perhaps by finding a quiet moment alone. When we return next week, the Intercultural Center will be hosting Indigenous/Latino lecturer, storyteller, and poet Bobby Gonzalez for a keynote presentation titled “The Tapestry of American History Through Native Eyes.” Join us on November 30 at 4pm in the IC. Link in bio to register. Thank you for helping each other stay healthy and safe this semester, and for filling the College’s spaces with the invigorating sights and sounds of MMC in action.

Stop #4 on our #featureFriday Division Chair spotlight tour! Meet Vandana Rao, Ph.D., the chair of MMC’s Division of Business. Dr. Rao is teaching three courses this semester: an NYC Seminar, which gives first-year students an up-close-and-personal look at businesses in the city; and two sections of Strategic Management, the capstone course for Business majors. In addition to her teaching duties, Dr. Rao moderates two business-related student clubs: the Investment Club and the Marymount Business Association, which helps MMC students make connections in the NYC biz world and build their network. You can visit Dr. Rao and the Division of Business on the 5th floor of Carson Hall in Room 517.

Stop #3 on our Division Chair spotlight tour! Meet Benedetta “Biba” Sampoli Benitez, Ph.D., the chair of MMC's Division of Sciences. In addition to her teaching chemistry, biochemistry, and nutrition, she and two MMC research assistants are currently working on a collaboration with Northeastern University to understand how protein can bypass DNA lesions. “I’m so excited for the fall semester! It feels so amazing — I just love to be back with my students. There is a different vibe. There is no Zoom that will match the pulse of a classroom." You can visit Dr. Sampoli and the Division of Sciences on the 6th floor of Carson Hall in room 614. Stay tuned next week to meet the next division, their faculty leader, and where to find them. Stay tuned!

The Homecoming action doesn’t stop! MMC’s Musical Theatre Association entertained a crowd with Fugitive Songs, a 19-song journey across America that spotlighted people on the run. Following the musical, parents and families gathered in the Commons and on the Lowerre Family Terrace for a reception. #mmchomecoming #Homecoming2021 (Photos by the talented @jess.massari)
