The Manhattan College community and President Brennan O’Donnell seek a Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs to lead the institution to its next level of academic excellence through a strong commitment to its Lasallian Catholic mission and values, a communicative and collaborative entrepreneurial spirit, and an unwavering focus on student success.
Founded in 1853 by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, a Roman Catholic teaching order, Manhattan College (College) is located in the residential Riverdale section of The Bronx, 10 miles and a 30-minute subway ride from Midtown Manhattan. The College has enhanced and expanded its reputation for excellence chiefly by building on its core strengths: its Lasallian Catholic heritage, its location as a residential campus in New York City, and its ability to offer, in a medium-sized and person-centered college setting, an extraordinarily broad range of disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and co-curricular opportunities.
Manhattan College’s over 3,500 full and part-time undergraduates and more than 575 full and part-time graduate students pursue degrees in one of five schools serving traditional undergraduate students – Liberal Arts, Science, Engineering, Education & Health, and the O’Malley School of Business – as well as the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS), which offers a blended learning approach for adult students. The College is fully accredited by Middle States Commission on Higher Education, with its reaffirmation scheduled for 2021.
