The Center for Inclusion at Manhattanville College provides educational cultural and social programming, mentoring, training, comprehensive resources, and materials to facilitate and support the development and enhanced understanding of different cultures, ethnicities, backgrounds, and experiences. In doing so, the center supports students’ academic, social, cultural, and personal well-being and will allow students the opportunity to empower and educate themselves, their peers, and their community.
Our main priority is to establish and maintain an environment that supports, values, and respects every Manhattanville student, faculty, and staff regardless of race, class, gender, age, sexual preference, disabilities, nationality, religion, or beliefs. The center exhibits this commitment by:
Conducting regular programming such as our weekly Nacho Average Monday event and the Manhattanville ICCP (intercultural competency certificate program) which covers topics such as: intercultural dialogue and conflict, social identity, power, privilege and oppression and how to be an active ally
Providing space for students, staff and faculty to come together and dialogue about hot button issues affecting our community. The resource center has books, videos, and other learning tools to foster difficult communication
Bringing dynamic speakers and events to campus as well as creating partnerships with local and national organizations to provide students the opportunity to learn from the best in regards to social justice education and training
The Center for Inclusion is located in Founder’s Gallery next to the Office of International Student Services, the Sister Mary T. Clark, RSCJ Center for Religion and Social Justice, and the Center for Student Success.
The Manhattanville Advancement Program (MAP)
The 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 for first semester incoming freshman students.
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.
The Manhattanville College Intercultural Competency Program (ICCP) invites you to challenge both yourself and the society you live in through a series of workshops about all facets of culture, from race to sexuality.
An opportunity for Manhattanville College students to connect with veterans/pioneers/practitioners in the hip-hop industry and learn the culture, history and skills that earned the respect and influence they have today.
