Community Service

Social Action

Since Manhattanville’s inception in 1841, its founders have bequeathed the mission, vision and heritage of social responsibility: the symbiotic relationship of academic excellence and social and ethical responsibility to its faculty and students. The College continues its involvement in social action and engagement in social justice.

The Sister Mary T. Clark, RSCJ Center

For Religion and Social Justice

Social justice and civic engagement are at the heart of the Manhattanville mission - and The Sister Mary T. Clark, RSCJ Center is at the heart of our service efforts. The Sister Mary T. Clark, RSCJ Center provides many opportunities for Valiants to give back. Programming includes weekly trips to New York City to provide food and clothing for the homeless, biannual trips to New Orleans to rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, and much more. Incoming undergraduates can also apply to be a Sister Mary T. Clark, RSCJ Scholar, and receive a $2,000 scholarship a year for the service they complete, as well as participate in the Fourth Credit Option, which gives them the opportunity to earn extra academic credit.
