“Manhattanville College School of Business embraces diversity as exemplified by our student body and faculty,” said Dr. Anthony Davidson, dean of Manhattanville School of Business. “This event, honoring an important milestone in American history, is another example of Manhattanville’s commitment to its culture of inclusion and equality.”
