The Mariner Promise

The Mariner Promise

In alignment with our adaptability model, Mitchell College is continuously assessing the changing winds brought on by the current pandemic, and carefully and thoughtfully ‘adjusting our sails’ in response – with the health and safety of our entire Mariner community as our guiding principle.

Helping to anchor our Fall 2020 reopening plan is the Mariner Promise – an agreement all members of the Mitchell College community will be asked to sign prior to arriving on campus for the 2020/2021 academic year. View the Student Mariner Promise.

Being in a community — living, learning, and working together — is vital to the mission of Mitchell College. The COVID-19 global pandemic and associated risks require that each of us observe heightened health and safety precautions. We are all connected and it is up to each of us to do our part to keep our community healthy. 


A few words on fit.


"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual

  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways

  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success

  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience

  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience

  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities

  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences

  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world

  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
