A Message from Joanne Passaro, PhD
In the midst of a very challenging year, MCNY students persevered in their studies in 2021 at levels that far exceeded our expectations. Their courage and tenacity inspired all of us as they persisted despite illness, economic uncertainty and the many inequities of the pandemic. It was deeply gratifying to hear from so many students that these experiences served to reinforce their commitment to lead purposeful change in their communities.
Students come to MCNY for that very reason: they know that our powerful curricular model, Purpose-Centered Education, will develop their skills in linking theory with practice and will prepare them, through successive Constructive Action projects, to advance positive change.
