The Deans’ Circle program at Marist began in 1999 and is designed to mentor, cultivate, and support the College's “best and brightest” by providing individualized attention and support services. It is directed at students who have shown the potential to become leaders in their chosen fields in the future.
The mission of the Deans’ Circle is to help students identify their strengths and advise them about special opportunities available to them. These initiatives include supporting them in the pursuit of nationally competitive fellowships and scholarships, helping them obtain practical experience through internships, and advising them on entrance into quality graduate programs and/or attractive positions in high-quality companies.
Deans’ Circle students are not only academically excellent, but also socially aware, service-oriented, and dedicated to lifelong learning. This program is designed to encourage these values in our students and to challenge them to consider the impact they will have and the things they will achieve after college.
