Core Council

Additionally, the MMC Core Council recognizes the need for coordination of activities of member organizations by:

  • Establishing and administering the activities of the member organizations;
  • Assisting the college administration in attaining its engagement objectives;
  • Maintaining student involvement, advocacy, and inter-council relations;
  • Acting as a catalyst for member organizations on matters of interest to both the college and member organizations; and
  • Encouraging student leaders and organizations to maintain involvement within the college community in its entirety at Marymount Manhattan College.
