Letter from the Dean of Enrollment Admissions
At Pine Manor College, we are committed to creating the right setting to ensure each student’s success. Our mission states that we are: “to make certain that all graduates are prepared to take meaningful steps in their lives: engaging in new jobs and careers, continuing to learn, and positively contributing to their communities. Students, including those who are the first in their families to attend college, who are looking for a purposeful education in a personalized and inclusive learning community will find a home at Pine Manor College.” We weave this mission into everything we do. It is in the way we work with each student, help them discover their passion, empower them to dream big, and find real paths to reach their goals.
Our community of learners includes 84% students who are the first in their families to go to college, and 85% who are coming from underrepresented communities. We thrive on our uniqueness and celebrate our focus on student success through our Student Success Initiative. Among other resources, the initiative designates both an Academic Advisor and a Success Coach to each one of our students for the full duration of your college career, essentially providing at least two mentors to support you on your college journey.
Pine Manor College is not your typical college. Just minutes from downtown Boston, the college enjoys about 50 acres of landscaped grounds. Our beautiful campus, located in the sought-after Brookline neighborhood of Chestnut Hill, is home to under 500 students. And it is indeed a home away from home.
Our small community is our strength. It allows our faculty and staff to provide a support structure rarely seen on college campuses. And there are concrete outcomes to that individualized approach: 95% of our graduates are either employed or pursuing advanced degrees within 6 months of graduation. They came to Pine Manor College to pursue a bachelor’s degree, however, they completed their education with a career!
There are many different ways to define success. What will your definition be? Join our family of driven students and be inspired to define and achieve your own success. We will be here to cheer you on all the way through!
