MMCAA Statement on Reports of Sexual Harassment

The Maryknoll/Miriam College Alumni Association (MMCAA) stands by the values of truth, justice, peace and integrity of creation that our alma mater upholds.  Our experience and the experiences of countless other graduates--all of us sisters and brothers in Maryknoll/Miriam--are living testimonies to how our School strives to be the best in providing quality and relevant Christian education, while continuing the legacy left by the Maryknoll sisters who founded the school.


We are truly saddened to hear the reports of alleged inappropriate behavior by some male faculty members and the emotional wounds that these may have caused on some students.  We decry ALL forms of harassment and violations to basic rights.  We strongly support the School's move to investigate this matter; we pray that it be an objective, impartial and fair investigation.  Further, we assure our fellow alumni, parents and students, faculty, employees and everyone in the Miriam community that your MMCAA will be closely monitoring the developments in the investigation.  We love our School which has become a second home to many, and we also wish it to be a better and safer place to be in.  We also desire for everyone in our Maryknoll/Miriam family to follow the ideals of our Blessed Mother, and remain fair-minded, steadfast and kind, whatever the challenges may be.
