Campus Ministry and Social Action (CMSA) helps to instill the values of faith, social action, service and community in students of all religious and spiritual traditions. The CMSA office offers a number of programs for you to delve deeper into your spirituality and advocate for those suffering from injustices.
Clubs are a perfect way to stay involved on campus at Manhattan College. There is a club for just about any you can think of. These clubs are Lasallian in a way that they allow students to form a community with one another through some form of service.
Interested in studying abroad but want to continue receiving a quality Lasallian education? You’re in luck!
In order to further advance the effective and mutually beneficial cooperation and develop academic and cultural exchange in education, research and other areas, the International Association of La Salle Universities – IALU has launched the One La Salle Initiative, a multilateral agreement for exchange of undergraduate students amongst the Lasallian network.
The One-La Salle agreement facilitates significant study abroad opportunities among the 64 Lasallian colleges and universities across the globe.
The La Salle Summer Program brings together Lasallian students from different countries to discuss systemic and social problems throughout the world. Students are able to connect with peers from throughout the world, while at the same time addressing problems that they face in their local, national, and international lives. Furthermore, students receive firsthand accounts about life, politics, culture, and other aspects of the many different countries that are represented at the conferences. These objectives are addressed in various ways such as international and national country projects, international culture nights, trips, presentations, and leadership building exercises.
Participants of this program will build their leadership skills in a Lasallian context, and upon their return, are expected to become sparks that will ignite and sustain the Lasallian community. During their time together in the program, student participants will work amongst themselves to develop a project that could be executed once returned home to their respective institutions.
In light of the current global situation and uncertainty of international travel, there is little information about the 2021 programming as of right now.
Although locations vary by year, this event has taken place in previous years in the following locations: France, Philadelphia, Spain, Italy, Mexico, and Brazil.
Students who are interested will fill out an application and go through an interview process. Manhattan College typically sends 2-4 students to this program.
