Women's Week at Manhattan College

From March 18 - 24, the College will host a series of events that aim to address women's issues worldwide, and empower women in their personal and professional lives.

Culminating in the second annual Lasallian Women and Gender Conference, the Women’s Week events this month at Manhattan are diverse in nature, but deliver the same inherent message: that whether it’s through playing a sport, practicing faith in God, or striving to reach a professional goal, our College faculty, administrators and students demonstrate strength in community  a core component of what it means to be Lasallian. Students performing science experiment.
