What is Marist Young Professionals?

Marist Young Professionals, or MYP, is a group of Marist College faculty and staff who come together for networking and programming to further their careers.

What's the mission of MYP?

The mission of MYP is to provide Marist College employees with an opportunity to network, develop professionally, volunteer, and strengthen the Marist Community.  

Are you all business?

Nope! We like to have fun too. In addition to programs with a focus on career development, we also like to get together for events from happy hour to kickball. 

What's a young professional?

You decide! While programming is geared toward professionals in the beginning to mid-stages of their careers and those in career transitions, we welcome all Marist faculty and staff to join us. 

Can anyone attend an MYP event?

Yes, events are open to all Marist faculty and staff, regardless of age.  We just ask that you join our list here and RSVP for any upcoming events in advance. 

What kind of programming does MYP do?

We do everything from happy hours off-campus, to Leadership Roundtables, joint events with community organizations and volunteering in the Hudson Valley.  You can find a list of our recent and upcoming events here.

Is there a cost to being an MYP member?

There is no fee to be a member of MYP, though, at some of our events members will need to cover their own costs.
