First Year Programs & Leadership Development
The Office of First Year Programs & Leadership Development (FYP & LD) is dedicated to assisting first-year students in their transition to Marist by addressing the social, cognitive and emotional challenges they encounter. New students are guided in their intellectual and personal development through campus wide projects such as Orientation and Welcome Week, as well as through a variety of academic and social programs involving small group and one-on-one interactions. Mentor relationships are continued with students in subsequent years as they endeavor to succeed academically, become influential leaders, and develop into well-balanced citizens of the Marist and World community. FYP & LD works with all class years by offering opportunities for leadership development to all interested undergraduate students by providing skills and experiences essential for lifelong leadership engagement.
