About Us

A Message from our President, Dr. Kerry Walk:

Welcome to Marymount Manhattan College, a vibrant, close-knit community of creative and intellectually curious students, faculty, and staff in the heart of New York City.

For over 80 years, Marymount Manhattan College (MMC) has offered students the best of both worlds—the personal approach of a small college combined with the limitless opportunities of one of the world’s greatest cities. MMC provides a college education unlike any other, with notable strengths in the creative and performing artscommunication and media, business, entrepreneurship, and liberal arts and sciences.

The College is dedicated to preparing students from diverse backgrounds for meaningful lives and careers. Central to these efforts is the particular attention given to each individual student. MMC’s exceptional faculty and staff encourage students to forge their unique pathway by pursuing individual interests and passions while exploring new ideas, new approaches, and new worlds.

We hope that as you visit with us, either on our Upper East Side campus or through our website, you will see why so many generations of students have chosen to launch their futures at this very special place—an oasis of intensive, personalized learning in the midst of a bustling global metropolis.

I am honored to be a part of the MMC family, and I invite you to explore all that Marymount Manhattan has to offer.
