Manhattanville University Launch

Manhattanville Officially Became a University on April 3!

"Always Forward. Always Valiant." 


In April of 2024, Manhattanville celebrated two major milestones: the public announcement of our transition to Manhattanville University on April 3 at 12:45 PM in Reid Circle and the official Installation of our new president on April 5. The Inauguration of the fifteenth president of Manhattanville, Frank D. Sánchez, PhD, took place on April 5, 2024, at 10 AM. The Inaugural Gala followed at 6 PM that evening. 

Our public announcement of our University status was part of the Inauguration Week events in April with the theme “Leading a Valiant Vision.” 

The rebranding effort encompassed new messaging with a University Launch campaign with the theme “Always Forward. Always Valiant.” 

The new logos and brand guidelines can be found on our SharePoint site linked at the bottom of this page under "Internal Marketing Requests." 

This rebranding initiative represented a significant milestone in our history, and this celebration was the culmination of the collaborative efforts of people and groups around campus.
