Marymount Manhattan College provides programs and events to welcome and help international students adjust to life at the College as well as celebrate and share their own customs and culture with the MMC community.
Cultural Peer Mentors
Cultural Peer Mentors (CPMs) are student leaders who help new international students become acclimated to Marymount Manhattan College and to the larger New York City community. Those selected to become CPMs will undergo training by College staff to gain the skills necessary to enable them to serve as resources for international students. CPMs interact with new international students to provide them with a clear understanding of MMC life and opportunities while encouraging their involvement in the College community. They are role models, advisors, and friends, but most of all, they are students themselves who care about helping their classmates from abroad integrate seamlessly into college life.
Applications for the 2019-2020 Cultural Peer Mentor Staff are now closed.
If you would like more information about the organization, please contact Fanny He at firstname.lastname@example.org or 212-774-0746.
Marymount Manhattan College hosts multiple events per month designed to create sense of belonging and community at the College. Traditionally, these events have included monthly Coffee Chats that provide a chance to chat with your Cultural Peer Mentor (CPM) about college life, Game Night, an International Potluck, and Mini-Golf, among others.
International Education Week
International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. During November of every year, multiple offices and departments at Marymount Manhattan College come together to arrange events to expand global awareness and promote education abroad.
