NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Dec. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — From acquiring a new campus and launching the NewYork-Presbyterian Iona School of Health Sciences to rediscovering a lost Baroque painting hidden in plain sight for decades, Iona College celebrated dozens of newsworthy accomplishments in 2021.
Guided by the leadership of President Seamus Carey, Ph.D., Iona’s forward-thinking strategies have helped this Catholic liberal arts college emerge as an anomaly in higher education, with new student enrollment spiking 32 percent in the past two years.
"Iona is a school on the rise, and I believe the momentum will continue to build," said President Seamus Carey, Ph.D.
"Despite the headwinds facing higher education, 2021 was a remarkable year for Iona College," said Carey. "Iona is a school on the rise, and I believe the momentum will continue to build as many of our plans are still coming to fruition. Thank you to the Iona community for heeding the call to innovate. Together, we continue to ‘Fight the Good Fight’ and lead by example."
Iona’s top 10 accomplishments in 2021 include:
Founded in 1940, Iona College is a master’s-granting private, Catholic, coeducational institution of learning in the tradition of the Edmund Rice Christian Brothers. Iona’s 45-acre campus is just 20 miles north of Midtown Manhattan. With a total enrollment of nearly 4,000 students and an alumni base of over 50,000 around the world, Iona is a diverse community of learners and scholars dedicated to academic excellence and the values of justice, peace and service. Iona is highly accredited, offering undergraduate degrees in liberal arts, science, and business administration, as well as Master of Arts, Master of Science and Master of Business Administration degrees and numerous advanced certificate programs. Iona’s LaPenta School of Business is accredited by AACSB International, a prestigious recognition awarded to just five percent of business schools worldwide. The Princeton Review recognized Iona’s on-campus MBA program as a "Best Business School for 2021." Iona College also recently launched a new, fully online MBA program for even greater flexibility. In July 2021, Iona College and NewYork-Presbyterian announced the establishment of the NewYork-Presbyterian Iona School of Health Sciences, to be principally located on the College’s new campus at 171 White Plains Road, Bronxville, N.Y. Supported by a $20 million gift from NewYork-Presbyterian, the NewYork-Presbyterian Iona School of Health Sciences is expected to offer a new vision for collaborative health care education, modern workforce development, and community care.
