The One Manhattan Pledge
Jaspers care about each other — that is what makes Manhattan College such a special place to live and learn. Protecting ourselves and one another is more important now than ever before. The One Manhattan Pledge is our way of taking responsibility for the health and safety of our community and taking the necessary steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are encouraging every member of our campus community to review the pledge; if possible, read it out loud; remember why it is important; and sign it. Together we are One Manhattan. Please take the pledge, which you can find here.
