Find Your Edge

  • Not only did I start to find myself and carve my path, but MMC and my professors were extremely supportive of me and my career. Being a singer/songwriter and performer my whole life, I was able to go on nationwide tours during the semester as my professors thought it would help me develop my professional skills.

  • MMC’s Social Work program is based on a social justice perspective that encourages you to understand how personal transformation is tied to systems transformation, and vice versa. The minor was a big support to me in my interpersonal and strategy work as an organizer for environmental justice and racial justice in NYC.

  • I am constantly applying the skills I learned from my classes. The professors helped me become a better writer, taught me about digital media, and gave me an understanding of how to flourish in day-to-day interpersonal settings.

  • The Philosophy and Religious Studies program at MMC is near and dear to my heart. The MMC program provided an excellent foundation in philosophy and gave me a home for four years. I would not be where I am today without the training I received at MMC. I wholeheartedly recommend the philosophy and religious studies program to anyone who wants a rigorous education in philosophy that values personal growth and creativity.

We’re #MMCProud of alum Monet Hurst-Mendoza ’09, a playwright, director, and theatre producer. Her play Torera, which follows a Mexican woman training to become a matador, will have its world premiere at the venerated @AlleyTheatre in Houston this spring. And that’s just the start: Following a month-long run there, the play will be produced by Connecticut’s Long-Wharf Theatre. “I haven’t had a significant run of one of my works before, so I’m looking forward to seeing subsequent productions and how the play will evolve,” she said.

As we celebrate #MLKDay, we look to his late widow and a member of the MMC community, Coretta Scott King. Coretta received an honorary degree from Marymount Manhattan College in 1969; that same year, she sponsored the very first #MLKDay observance in Atlanta. She would go on to lead the 15-year fight to have Dr. King’s birthday recognized as a national holiday. Coretta was also a tireless champion of peace, justice, and human rights herself. A longtime advocate for LGBT rights, she noted in 1998 that “homophobic attitudes and policies were unjust and unworthy of a free society and must be opposed by all Americans who believe in democracy.” She died in 2006, but we still draw from her wisdom, including her reminder that “freedom is never really won; you earn it and win it in every generation.”  💙
