Get to Know Marist
Welcome from President Kevin C. Weinman
Marist College is a very special place whose upward trajectory over the past several decades is matched by only a small number of colleges and universities in the nation. Our academic programs, our finances, and our campus have never been in better shape. There is a sense of dynamism and optimism about the future that is palpable. While the College is not immune from the challenges that face American higher education, Marist is a real success story thanks to the commitment and hard work of its faculty and staff.
