The Manhattanville mission is “to educate students to become ethically and socially responsible leaders for the global community.”
In 500 words or more, please examine how your educational and extracurricular activities together have helped you to better understand the mission. Please use the following questions to shape your answer: What does it mean to you to be ethically and socially responsible? How have your courses facilitated ethical development? How has participation in your courses as well as experiences outside of the classroom helped you to develop leadership skills? What does “global community” mean to you? What experiences have helped you gain a wider perspective with regard to the global community and your place in it? How do you plan to continue living the mission of this College until graduation and thereafter?
In your essay, we expect a well-organized, thoughtful response demonstrating your ability to articulate your ideas clearly and concisely. It is expected that you work closely with your advisor examining the question, thinking through the answer and drafting the response. Please see the Manhattanville Portfolio System website for a rubric describing the expectations for this essay.
Your advisor will need to formally approve your essay in the Comments section on this page. Be sure to "Approve" these comments so the Board on Academic Standards can see them!
