The Iona Experience: People and values that move the world.
As Interim Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Iona College. I have the privilege of serving in this Interim position and learning about the essence of the Iona College experience. It is clear to me that through the dedication and commitment to the mission of the College from our students, faculty, staff, trustees and alumni, Iona is a special place to learn and grow.
Iona is an institution that meets challenges with fortitude and integrity that is embedded in our tradition and mission. It is this spirited determination that is palpable in all areas of the College from academics to athletics, to student activities, to campus ministries, and so on. All one has to do is spend one day on campus and you recognize that the proof of Iona College truly rests in its people.
Iona offers an innovative curriculum that encourages students and faculty to work closely and collaboratively toward shared learning goals. This inspiring learning culture fosters development of an active human conscious and awareness, as well as deep skills you can use to meet life challenges or career goals.
In practical terms, Iona’s campus is beautiful and in a suburban setting, yet with close proximity to the cultural, economic, and entertainment assets of the world-class city that is New York. Simply put, at Iona, you can have the best of both worlds.
I invite you to navigate the rest of this website and explore the more than 45 program majors and 35 minors or the 26 graduate program offerings available to you, all of which offer a challenging educational experience through an appropriate mix of classroom instruction, independent research, and internship or practical experience.
Discover all that Iona College has to offer -- academically, socially, and spiritually. I am sure you won’t be disappointed.
