Long Island Connections
Molloy College is committed to educating minds - and to changing lives. This commitment extends far beyond our school community to impact the lives of thousands . . . many of whom will never set foot on our Long Island college campus. With volunteer efforts at more than 40 agencies and academic service learning programs that incorporate our service mission into our curriculum, we encourage students to take an active role in bettering our community.
Our innovative, collaborative, community-focused programs also take on our region's toughest challenges transforming lives through education and advocacy:
