Institutional Effectiveness

Manhattan College is implementing phase 1 of "Renewing the Promise: A Strategic Plan for Manhattan College 2025." The focus of phase 1 is "Building a Distinguished Lasallian Catholic College, 2011-2016."

Manhattan College will be distinguished especially for its integration of learning and living, its innovative combination of liberal learning and professional preparation, its success in helping its students to develop as persons of moral purpose and integrity, and its engagement with New York City. At the heart of this experience will be an atmosphere of personal care for each member of the College community and an expectation of high achievement in fulfillment of each individual's unique vocation.

As the overarching goal is one of integration with the primary stress on the quality of the student's educational experience, the College will pursue this goal through an integrated effort among all of its divisions. The plans of Academic Affairs, Student Affairs and Mission are at the center, with Advancement, Enrollment Management, Facilities, Finance and Human Resources providing the support necessary to achieve the goal.

The Core Goals

  • We will create an environment for learning that transcends traditional disciplinary, programmatic, cultural and physical boundaries.
  • We will create the programmatic and physical infrastructure necessary to promote excellence in the integration of learning and living.
  • We will ensure that our core identity as Catholic and Lasallian is vital and visible throughout the College.

A systematic process of reporting on the progress made in advancing achievement of the goals outlined in the College's strategic plan has been established. Heads of all administrative units report periodically on how they are using the results of assessment to improve programs and services.
