The Marist Core
**All Spring FYS students should read this year's Common Reading, Reyna Grande's The Distance Between Us (Washington Square Press, 2012), before Spring 2018 classes start.**
A Message from VPAA/Dean of Faculty Dr. Thomas Wermuth
The 21st century has infused significant changes in the global, social, and economic landscape. As Marist educators, we must ensure our students are fully equipped to meet these challenges as they complete their degrees. The Marist Core provides significant opportunities for deep learning and intellectual engagement while helping students develop practical skills necessary to succeed in today’s complex world.
