History is the study of the past. Historians explain how human relationships have changed over time. They are storytellers whose narratives are rooted in reality, and specific to a time and place. They are also scientists who weigh evidence, test theories and search for truth.
Courtney Slack ’14, events assistant at the 9/11 Memorial Museum
Manhattan College’s value of service showed me that I wanted to work for an institution whose mission it is to make sure 9/11 is never forgotten, and to serve not only the New York City community as a place of healing and remembrance, but as an international stage that ensures that all those who died will never be forgotten.
