President's Message

A message from Fr. Kevin E. Mackin, OFM
President of Mount Saint Mary College

Dear Friends:

Welcome to Mount Saint Mary College’s website. Here, you can find information about our programs and campus life, and apply online.

I hope you have the opportunity to visit our beautiful campus: a “gem” in historic Newburgh, New York, overlooking the Hudson River Valley. If you’re a prospective student, you’ll experience firsthand our wireless campus with the latest technology, our “smart classrooms” and laboratories, our nicely equipped residence halls, and most important, our state-of-the-art community.

As a Catholic and Dominican college in the liberal arts tradition, we are guided by values and opportunities, and are recognized for excellence in teaching, learning, scholarship and community engagement. Catholic education is a rich tapestry of men and women working across fields of study, surfacing gifts which are enlightening and beneficial.

We are committed to the intellectual, social, ethical, and spiritual development of our students: preparing them for professions and developing their full potential as lifelong learners.

Our students bring a vigor that invites people to become involved in our diverse and vibrant community. The truth is, to lead is to understand others well enough to awaken their trust in themselves.

We invite you to participate at the Mount, where we develop skills of mind and habits of heart. I look forward to meeting you.

Fr. Kevin E. Mackin, OFM
