New this month - Northeastern & Marymount Manhattan College Pursue Merger

Northeastern, a global research university and the world leader in experiential learning, and Marymount Manhattan College, a private liberal arts college on the Upper East Side of New York City, have agreed to merge.

The merger would combine MMC, a liberal arts college primarily known for its performing arts programs, with Northeastern's global experiential learning network and its rapidly growing research enterprise. This process concluded with MMC's board voting unanimously to pursue the merger with Northeastern. Ted Mitchell, president of the American Council on Education, the largest higher education advocacy organization in the country, considers the merger "a win-win for Northeastern University and Marymount Manhattan College and, most importantly, for the students they serve."

MMC's full-time faculty members at the time of the merger will become Northeastern faculty, receive one-year contracts, and be considered for available tenured, tenure-track and non-tenure-track positions. All staff employed by MMC upon the effective date of the merger will become Northeastern employees.

As part of the merger, Northeastern will establish a center that reflects the strengths and traditions of MMC. Northeastern will also retain MMC's Bedford Hill and Taconic College prison education programs.
