Effective July 1, 2002, Marymount College will consolidate with Fordham University to create a new model of a Catholic women's college, one that will enjoy the academic and administrative resources of a major university while retaining the character of a small, liberal arts college. This union builds upon a long relationship between the two institutions and promises to strengthen Marymount's religious and intellectual traditions. Founded in 1841, Fordham is New York City's Jesuit University, enrolling approximately 14,000 students among its four undergraduate and six graduate schools. Marymount College will become the University's fifth undergraduate college.
