As part of our continued commitment to diversity and inclusion, the College is proud to announce our new Center for Inclusion, which is scheduled to open early in the spring semester 2017.

Here at Manhattanville, he is working on a paper with the head of the physics department, which he hopes to have published in a peer-reviewed journal. Fundira interned at Mastercard, where he won the intern business challenge.
