Centers for Academic Success

The mission of the Centers for Academic Success is to provide services and resources to students that will strengthen academic performance, enhance student satisfaction, and help them realize their educational goals.

The ultimate goal of the Centers for Academic Success is to enable and foster the personal growth and development of each student to allow them to become strong students, persons of upstanding moral character, leaders on campus and in the wider community, and people who welcome opportunities to make a positive difference in the world. 

The following is a brief description of the services offered by the Centers for Academic Success:

Manhattanville Advancement Program (MAP) - is a scholarship program that provides educational opportunity and support to economically disadvantaged students. The MAP scholarship is a four-year commitment.  Students receive a broad range of services including academic, personal, and career counseling.  Beyond the traditional academic focus of most scholarship programs, MAP encourages the development of the student as a whole— intellectually, ethically and socially. Students are encouraged towards these aims by fostering community service, student leadership development, and goal-oriented self-management.

Manhattanville Mentor Program (MMP) - has been specifically designed to assist incoming students as they begin their college careers. We are committed to doing this by providing a forum which gives mentees the opportunity to establish bonds and relationships with their fellow classmates to facilitate growth and awareness in and around the Manhattanville community. Mentees will be carefully matched with a mentor who is a Manhattanville upperclassman and engaged member of the Manhattanville community. Mentor and mentees will meet once a week where they will have the opportunity to attend campus events together, review positive work habits, or just socialize on their own terms.

The Transitional Program- any student who is admitted through the Office of Admissions transitionally is automatically included in the Student Enrichment Program. Students are required to attend a series of workshops that are designed to ease the transition to college life. Students must successfully complete 12 credits with at least 2.0 GPA by the end of their first semester. If all these criteria are successfully met, the students will have completed the program.

Invest in Success (IIS) - The Manhattanville College - Invest in Success scholarship program was established in 2000 to promote higher education among under represented students through educational outreach and financial assistance. During the month of February Manhattanville will award one scholarship to a graduating high school senior who demonstrates academic commitment and leadership potential.
