The Core Council at Marymount Manhattan College was established to coordinate the efforts among the six (6) major student organizations on campus to increase the engagement of the general student body, and to serve as a unifying voice to better address issues affecting the student body.
To accomplish its mission, the Core Council steadfastly works towards:
Establishing, coordinating, and publicizing the activities of the member organizations
Assisting the College’s administration in attaining its student engagement objectives
Maintaining student involvement, advocacy, and inter-council relations
Encouraging student leaders and organizations to maintain involvement within the college community at Marymount Manhattan College
Core Council Representation
The executive board of the Core Council is comprised of one representative from a number of active, longstanding student organizations on campus. The Core Council may never exceed six (6) member organizations. The participating organizations were selected, in part, due to the far-reaching nature of their mission and/or programming efforts and their perceived ability to work towards the overall mission of the Core Council.
