At Manhattan College, student achievement is grounded in the mission of the College.
Student achievement at Manhattan College is part of the mission to provide a contemporary, person-centered educational experience that prepares graduates for lives of personal development, professional success, civic engagement, and service to their fellow human beings. The College pursues this mission through programs that integrate a broad liberal education with concentration in specific disciplines in the arts and sciences or with professional preparation in business, education and engineering.
We offer a variety of opportunities for students to gain international experiences and develop global awareness and an understanding of the world.
The Office of Study Abroad offers a variety of opportunities, including study away in other U.S. locations. Many of our core programs are faculty-led and draw a diverse group of students.
Highlight programs include a Lasallian consortium project in Rome, which started in Spring 2018.
Over 200 students study abroad or study away each year in faculty-led and other programs.
The Lasallian Outreach Volunteer Experiences (LOVE) are service trips that offer students the chance to live and work in solidarity with the poor, experience an unfamiliar culture, learn about issues of social justice and engage in hands-on service.
The Arches is a learning and living experience that provides an enriching introduction to college life for Manhattan College freshmen. Arches students live in a community in Lee Hall and take one class together each semester of their freshman year that incorporates cultural excursions and service projects in New York City. Many former Arches students say the friendships they made through the program last well beyond graduation.
There have been anywhere from 150-175 new students participating in Arches for the last three years.
