The Marist College Athletics Program serves to support the ideals of Marist College by its commitment to excellence in education and to the pursuit of higher human values through the self-knowledge and personal development that come from participation in athletics activity. The Athletics Program is dedicated to the development of the whole person and the integration of ethical values consistent with the Mission Statement of Marist College. Whether through working with the Center for Student-Athlete Enhancement or our Title IX Office, Marist Athletics strives to create a well-rounded experience for student-athletes. 

The Athletics Program strives to offer Marist students the opportunity to participate in athletics activity at their level of ability and interest - intercollegiate, club, intramural, or recreational. The Athletics Program aims to complement academic and social experiences with the development of organizational skills, leadership qualities, and an appreciation for sportsmanship and team effort through athletics opportunities and community service.

The Athletics Program is committed to be competitive at the NCAA Division I or other member conference level, to offer equitable opportunities to all students and staff, and to advance their welfare, health, and safety.
