What We’re About

Graduation from MMC past
From our beginnings as a two-year women’s college, we’ve transformed significantly and evolved to meet the changing needs of our students. But one thing has remained constant: our commitment to providing higher education for diverse populations.
Honors Day 2018
We want to see our students rise to their creative and intellectual potential, develop their own sense of personal growth, and chart their unique path to professional success. Equally important, we want them to be engaged members of their communities.

We embrace our responsibility to create a welcoming and accessible community built on our core values and beliefs. Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan, along with the President’s Task Force for Racial Equity and the Advisory Committee for Inclusivity, have set specific goals for addressing issues of inequality.
  • The amazing classes taught by brilliant professors gave me the knowledge needed to step into a full-time role at a company. Furthermore, the fact that the college was in NYC made me independent, courageous, and open-minded.

When psych professor Nava Silton Ph.D. published her seventh textbook this summer, it held extra special meaning for the MMC community: Nine students served as contributors and wrote entire chapters under her guidance. The book, The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Child, Adolescent, and Adult Development, explores how the pandemic adversely impacted those with disabilities and affected schooling, relationships, and mental, physical, and developmental health. MMC contributors include Alexandra (Ali) McClellan ’22, Brianna Blackwell ’21, Ariana Lopez ’21, Amanda Hall ’21, Regina Colie ’21 (all pictured above), Emily Angelillo ’22, Ingrid Brussier ’21, Manuella Hounton ’21, and Justin Vrana ’21.

Brianna Blackwell ’21. “Since graduating from MMC, I’ve worked as an assistant teacher at a Montessori preschool, guiding children through a self-directed and hands-on learning environment.” 3. Ariana Lopez ’21. “This fall, I’ll be starting my master’s in social work, which will hopefully lead to my LCSW and then onto my Ph.D. My goal is to open my own practice.” 4. Amanda Hall ’21. “I just started a new job as a Virtual Reality Host for a WarnerMedia store, and I’m also branching out into voice acting!” 5. Regina Colie ’21. “After graduating last year, I decided to attend graduate school to pursue my master’s degree. I’m enjoying my journey thus far, and I’m excited to see what my future holds in the field of psychology.” 6. Professor Silton

👏👏👏 #MMCProud! Congrats to Sarah Nelson Wright (@southnorthwest), an associate Communication and Media Arts professor and director of the Theresa Lang Center for Producing. Her public media art project Tomorrow’s Sea was selected for the outdoor exhibition Art at the BlueLine, which launches this Saturday at the South Street Seaport. Organized by the @waterfrontalliance, the show highlights the risk we all face from sea level rise and coastal storms. Wright created Tomorrow’s Sea, an interactive media sculpture, with new media artist Edrex Fontanilla. It transports viewers to NYC shorelines threatened by #climatechange.

Marymount Manhattan is celebrating 63 of its newest graduates who may not have taken classes at its 71st Street campus but are every bit a part of the MMC family: Women at two state correctional facilities who received their bachelor’s and associate degrees through the College’s two prison education programs. In June, MMC President Kerry Walk conferred degrees on 39 incarcerated students at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison in Bedford Hills, NY, and 24 degrees on students at the adjacent medium-security prison Taconic Correctional Facility. MMC has been the sole degree-granting institution at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for 25 years. In 2019, the College began partnering with the nonprofit @HudsonLink to award degrees at Taconic. Pictured here: 📸 Graduating students from the Taconic College Program.
