Manhattan College was recognized once again by U.S. News & World Report in the 2012 rankings of Best Colleges as being one of the leading institutions in the country. U.S. News & World Report ranked the College as the No. 15 regional university in the North, moving up from No. 17 last year. This is the fourth year in a row that the College has placed in the top 20.
The College earned high ratings in many categories, including freshman retention rate, overall graduation rate and the percentage of alumni who contribute to the College. "Our perennial presence on this list affirms our place among the very best institutions of our kind, and our movement up this year reflects growing recognition of our strength," said Brennan O'Donnell, Ph.D., president of Manhattan College.
The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) at Georgetown University also recently listed Manhattan College among 35 schools nationally distinguished as "excellent" investments, and among 15 schools in the Northeast. In addition, Manhattan College was named No. 12 among the best Northeastern Colleges in the United States by Payscale.com.

On Oct. 1, the Manhattan College community and members of the Kearney family gathered together to honor Joseph Kearney '67 and re-dedicate the new five-lane Mondo surface indoor track. The event was also held in conjunction with the Spiked Shoe (track & field and cross country) reunion.
The original track was dedicated to Kearney on Dec. 7, 2002, the same day he was inducted to the Manhattan College Athletic Hall of Fame. A three-time All-American, he at one time held nine different Manhattan College records. Kearney captained the Jaspers three times and ran the anchor leg on many strong Manhattan relay squads during his career, and he ran the 880 yards at the 1967 NCAA Indoor Championships. After graduating from the College with a degree in mechanical engineering and also receiving a master's degree from MIT in 1969 and a doctorate in 1973, both in nuclear engineering, Kearney worked in the White House under Presidents Ford and Carter before moving on to a successful career in the energy business.

On Sept. 28, Manhattan College's first five-year M.B.A. class symbolically transitioned from undergraduate students to graduate students with a special presentation and ceremony.
The 19 candidates worked in teams of four or five with a faculty sponsor, and each prepared a brief presentation on current business topics. After each presentation, the M.B.A. candidates fielded questions from the audience. A separate group of faculty and distinguished business alumni (Jeanne Altenau '79, Shaleen Dastur '04, Matthew Donohue '92, Aileen Farrelly '95, Charles Lynch '76, Nancy Maksomski '98, James O'Rourke '85, John Paluszek '55, Peter Torrente '88, Kandice Watson '10 and Lindsay Wills '04) were asked to sit as a panel and judge each of the presentations. The highest scoring team, which presented "Healthcare: Is it a Right or a Privilege," consisted of: Gabriella Catalano, Caitlin E. Frazer, Joseph E. Fernandes, Justin Clifford Jensen and Ashley Megan Zere.
The topics presented covered a wide range of areas in business today that are regularly analyzed and discussed. "How Green is Green Enough?" (Michael J. Borger, Joanna M. Kaminski, Brian M. Korney, Samantha Rose Marchese and Cara Ann Vullo) investigated how businesses prioritize the environment by looking at several different business models and analyzing the role of the consumer in this decision-making process. Whereas "Sarbanes-Oxley; Has it Been Effective?" (Kai Ni Feng, Diana Marcellino, Domenick F. McLaughlin, Jonathan James Potter and Erika Talesnik) examined the pros and cons of the 2002 business act and how it changed practices for better or worse. "Standard and Poors Credit Rating Agency – Credible Judgments or not?" (Fluvial C. Gaeta, Melissa Marie Lungariello, Vitaliy Simonian and Brian Uditnarine Singh) looked at the downgrade of the United States' credit rating in comparison to other countries and other agencies and worked to discover if this rating was something to be taken seriously. Finally, "Healthcare: Is it a Right or a Privilege" considered the hot-button issue with an economic and business focus, as well as a moral one, and tried to find an answer that made sense in both lights.
The events provided an exciting networking opportunity for M.B.A. candidates, current undergraduates, faculty and alumni, and will hopefully pave the way for future M.B.A. classes.
On Sept. 26, Manhattan College's newly expanded Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Education Center (HGI) hosted a panel discussion, Hope and Healing Post 9/11: An Interfaith Dialogue From a Woman's Perspective. This discussion, calling on several different religious voices, aimed to expose the collective healing process after the terrorist attacks, and to show how a variety of groups were affected. It aimed to dispel religious tensions and serve as a guiding light into the future.
Three highly qualified women, Daisy Khan, executive director of ASMA (American Society for Muslim Advancement); Rori Picker Neiss, a student at Yeshivat Maharat, a pioneering institution training Orthodox Jewish women to be spiritual leaders and halakhic (Jewish) legal authorities; and Elena Procario-Foley, Ph.D., Driscoll Professor of Jewish-Catholic Studies at Iona College, took turns sharing personal anecdotes and connecting their communities and experiences with the global understanding of the attacks. Moderated by Mehnaz M. Afridi, Ph.D., the new director of HGI, the conversation brought to life aspects of the attack and its aftermath previously unexplored.
Niess, a high-school student at the time of the attacks, recalled one such aspect in her Israeli teacher's response to the news. "We're sitting [in school], in absolute fear, and the teacher stands up and continues the lesson. And we all were horrified. We said, 'We just had a terrorist attack, how can you possibly keep teaching?' And she said 'I come from Israel, this is what we do. You don't let it stop you, you keep on teaching.' And that's what she did. I don't remember a word of what she said that day."
The panel brought to life issues of community, healing and understanding that the American society as a whole had to deal with, coupled with the knowledge that these women, each with their very different backgrounds were parts of that American society. It was a poignant reminder that all of American society has strived to heal post 9/11 together.
