About

Who We Are

Manhattan College was founded in 1853 by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, a Catholic teaching order started by Saint John Baptist de La Salle. The Lasallian mission drives our focus on quality education for all and service to our neighbors in need. Our picturesque campus is located in The Bronx, a 35-minute subway ride from the heart of Manhattan. 

Our Vision

Manhattan College empowers exceptional graduates who not only go on to lead successful careers, but also make a positive impact in the world. Grounded in tradition, the transformative Jasper education is built on a strong liberal arts foundation and paired with hands-on, technical knowledge that evolves and adapts with our world. Guided by history, faith and strong leadership, Manhattan continues to climb in national rankings as a top-valued school.

What Makes Us Special


Students from around the world choose Manhattan College for its excellent educational programs, beautiful NYC campus and unparalleled career opportunities. Listen to testimonials from current Jaspers on why they chose to make Manhattan College their home.

What I love most about Manhattan College is the community and spirit of Jaspers which extend far beyond Manhattan College Parkway. I was able to learn more about myself, my community, and the world in which we live.
