INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE
A Message from Charles E. Armstrong, Chair, MCNY Board of Trustees
2021 was a challenging year. The COVID-19 pandemic altered —perhaps forever —the way we function as a college, as individuals, and as a society. Adjusting to a new normal of how we can best serve our students and amidst all the change, we continue to strive to build an ever-more equitable and inclusive environment in which all can thrive. The Board of Trustees unanimously supports the College’s mission and leadership, and we remain unwavering in our commitment to delivering a truly Purpose-Centered Education.
Diversity at MCNY means equity of representation, equity to effectuate the purpose of opportunity for all through engaging positive educational interaction, constructive action and instruction that inspires our learners to do more and to achieve more.
LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
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.
