Message from the Provost
Welcome to Academic Affairs, where we have a team of dedicated faculty and staff focused on academic excellence and student success. Our work integrates Marymount’s three pillars of intellectual curiosity, service to others, and building a global perspective. We put students first and we love our work.
In my view, there is no better place to be right now than the national capital region to network with dreamers and leaders in all fields to become a changemaker in the world. Our campus is less than seven miles from the White House, the headquarters of nearly every kind of national organization, international embassies and the World Bank – an ideal ecosystem for internships and career development. What is your passion? What is the one thing that you believe needs your talent and attention right now? Find your “it” and pursue it at Marymount. Here, you’ll find like-minded companions in liberal arts and professional fields that matter to the future, like design, communications, business, education, health, cybersecurity, and STEM.
Among our many points of pride are more than 160 full-time faculty who are committed to teaching while informed by active scholarship and personal and professional service. A select number of part-time faculty are also here: credentialed and accomplished professionals who bring authentic experiences and their global networks into your learning environment. Marymount has the demographic profile of tomorrow today and is annually recognized as one of the most diverse universities in the South. Our faculty and staff excel at meeting students where they are and guiding them higher. At Marymount, you’ll get both content and context, experiences that don’t just provide practice but develop personal significance and lifelong meaning.
You are choosing a great time to engage with Marymount. Our president, Dr. Matthew Shank, has just dedicated our state-of-the-art Ballston Center, focused on experiential studies and hands-on collaboration at every intersection of learning. This 21st century multi-use complex reflects a new era for the University and integration with our Arlington community.
Please let me, an associate provost, or one of our school deans know if we can assist you in any way as you consider Marymount, pursue your academic career here, and look to make your difference in the world.
