The Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
A Community Enriched by Diversity
Manhattanville has a proud history and unwavering commitment to developing a community where diversity is embraced, inclusiveness is practiced, and equity is intentionally sought. Our community is enriched by diversity in all its forms including but limited to age, ability, race, ethnicity, religion/spiritual tradition, gender identity and expression, sexual identity, veteran status, socioeconomic class, nation of origin, language spoken, documentation status, personal appearance and political beliefs. We are better because of the talents and experiences of our diverse community.
