Marist College is a private liberal arts college on the east bank of the Hudson River in Poughkeepsie, New York. The site was established in 1905 by the Marist Brothers, and the college was chartered in 1929. The college offers over 60 bachelors and masters degree programs and 20 certificates across the traditional undergraduate, graduate, adult education, and distance learning environments including online.
Approximately 4,500 undergraduate students attend the Poughkeepsie campus (41°43′22″N 73°56′0″W / 41.72278°N 73.93333°W / 41.72278; -73.93333). Marist College study sites also exist in 26 countries abroad including Egypt, China, England, Italy, and Australia. In 2006, Marist opened a branch campus in Florence, Italy, by partnering with the Lorenzo de' Medici School. In 2009, the school was bequeathed an estate with an estimated value of $65 million in Esopus, New York, which will be used as a leadership institute.
In 1969, ownership of the College was transferred from the Marist Brothers to the Marist College Educational Corporation with an independent, predominantly lay board of trustees.
Although Marist is no longer religiously affiliated, religion continues as a field of study and a part of many students' and administrators' lives; as does the continued presence of several Marist Brothers who reside and work on campus. The College maintains a chapel on campus, Our Lady Seat of Wisdom, to offer services for an array of faiths.
