THE RESULTS OF THE FALL 2021 CHALLENGE ARE OUT

How might we reconnect, re-engage, and re-build our campus community?

After close to 18 months of virtual learning and meeting, how might we re-commit to one another as colleagues, teachers, students, and alumni, resulting in a revitalized sense of community?

DESIGN CHALLENGE - IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19

With the closing of the Manhattanville campus in MID-March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 crisis, campus life as we knew it changed dramatically.

Once it became clear that this was a longer-term situation, President Michael Geisler wrote to Associate Provost Alison Carson with the “design challenge of a lifetime.” President Geisler and his Cabinet had already begun to examine the long-term effects a closed campus would have on our institution.  A cross-departmental community of faculty, students, and staff came together to meet the challenge.

Tackling Issues Surrounding Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion 

During the fall 2020 semester, Dr. Porter and the Presidential Taskforce on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion drafted a Roadmap towards Achieving Racial Equity and Inclusion that was widely discussed during the spring 2021 semester and will continue during the coming year. The Roadmap provides transparency and accountability in the College’s efforts to enhance the experience of historically underserved populations, identify and remove cultural and structural barriers impacting the student experience and outcomes, and guide institutional strategic planning and resource allocation.
