  • About Monroe College

    Monroe College was founded in 1933 with a single goal: To educate men and women for a successful future. Monroe is recognized as a leader in providing a focused, career-oriented, quality education that integrates classroom learning with real-world experience. Monroe offers a range of certificate, associate, bachelor's and master's degree programs.

    The College stands out for many reasons, and one of those reasons is the faculty. Monroe faculty are more than just professors—they are mentors, motivators and members of the Monroe family. Even more, each professor brings invaluable experience into the classroom.  Whether they are former NYPD detectives, business leaders, chefs or nurses, Monroe professors make sure their students benefit from their practical knowledge. At Monroe, there are no huge lecture halls. Because classes are small, instruction is personalized and professors know their students by name. It’s one of the main reasons our students do well—there’s always a professor who will arrive early or stay late to help a student understand and learn. Because of their dedication, Monroe faculty receive over a 90% positive rating on student surveys.
