Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Building and Inclusive Community at Manhattanville
At Manhattanville, our mission is to educate students to be ethically and socially responsible leaders in a global community. We are committed to providing a diverse, inclusive, and nurturing environment in order to inspire students’ commitment to global service and leadership.
We are very proud that throughout much of our history we have embraced and valued diversity and inclusion. This dates back to 1938, when then Manhattanville College president, Mother Grace Dammann, offered a passionate defense of the decision to admit the College’s first African American student. Her letter condemning racial discrimination remains a defining characteristic of who we are and what we continually work towards.
We maintain an unwavering commitment to continually developing a community where diversity is embraced, inclusiveness is practiced, and equity is intentionally sought. Our community is enriched by diversity in all its forms including identity characteristics such as age, disability, sex, race, ethnicity, religion/spiritual tradition, gender identity and expression, sexual identity, veteran status, job status or socioeconomic class, nation of origin, language spoken, documentation status, personal appearance and political beliefs. Simply put we are better because of the talents and experiences of our diverse community.
