While the 100 beautiful acres that make up Manhattanville are located in a quiet suburban setting, the culture, entertainment, and excitement of New York City are only 30 miles away. The private coeducational college founded in 1841 draws its 1,700 students from more than fifty countries and thirty states. Manhattanville College is ranked in the Princeton Review and Newsweek as one of the best colleges for undergraduate study. Manhattanville College has created a small global village. This richly diverse community embodies the College’s mission: to educate students to be ethical and socially responsible leaders in a global community.
Learning is at the heart of Manhattanville, and the College’s proximity to New York City creates a constant flow of opportunity that brings learning to life. Manhattanville students know how to have fun, but they also have a sense of purpose. The College’s social conscience is informed by a commitment to serving the community. The Corporation for National and Community Service named Manhattanville College in the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for excellent services. The Duchesne Center serves as the coordinator and catalyst for service learning, community outreach, culture, and leadership across the College campus and around the world. Last year, students participated in over 30,000 hours of community service. Manhattanville students actively seek opportunities to serve humanitarian causes in the developing world.
The College’s global perspective is enriched by its role as a Non-Governmental Organization of the United Nations. Select students have an opportunity to intern at the UN and to study with an ambassador.
