Marymount Manhattan College

New York, NY

Marymount Manhattan College says, "Part of our mission is to provide our students with an educational experience that allows them to 'develop an awareness of social, political, cultural and ethical issues, in the belief that this awareness will lead to concern for, participation in, and improvement of society.' The General Education curriculum puts this mission into action by requiring students to explore these social, political, cultural, and ethical issues in a variety of courses and invites them to extend their study beyond the classroom through experiential learning. Thus,our students gain the kind of knowledge that leads to active and informed citizenship." [Source]
