5 Core Principles

Informed by Manhattan’s Lasallian Catholic values and heritage, the plan is guided by five core principles: (1) protecting the health and safety of its students and the entire community; (2) continuing the pursuit of its core mission of academic excellence and student support; (3) respecting the individual circumstances and the dignity of each member of the community; (4) managing resources in order to assure the short- and long-term financial viability of the College; and (5) communicating with all stakeholders in a clear and timely manner.
