Student Life

Mission Statement

The Student Life Division serves the Lasallian Catholic educational mission of the College by promoting religiously and philosophically grounded moral virtues and values, the Catholic social justice tradition, student leadership and lifelong learning through solid social and spiritual supports; provides a caring and safe campus environment that embraces diversity; and fosters a living and learning experience that is a catalyst for individual development and community achievement. The Division supports all persons in student life leadership and staff positions to be conversant with the nature of the Catholic culture and Lasallian heritage of the College and educates students to this essential aspect of the mission.

Student Life personnel provide programs, advisement and services for the educational, financial, emotional, occupational, athletic, physical, social, cultural and religious needs located in a pluralistic community. Direction and assistance are provided through disciplined guidance, policies and procedures that engender respect both for personal dignity and the rights of others in promoting student development. The mission also includes a commitment to serve and help students develop quality, valued-based relationships with their peers and families as well as with the entire Manhattan College community.


The College offers a comprehensive program of student personnel services designed to develop the students’ potential for self-guidance in their efforts to achieve success in life as desirable members of society.
