Our Student Voices


Students at Manhattanville talk about using ePortfolios to make connections in their learning, showcase their work and prepare for Graduate School and the workplace.

Authors: Jim Frank and Gillian Hannum

In the early 1970s, funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the College developed the Manhattanville Portfolio System, becoming a national leader in portfolio-based education. Through the Portfolio, students have been planning, reflecting upon and integrating their learning for more than four decades.

In the 21st century, supported by Making Connections and Connect to Learning grants funded by the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education, Manhattanville has become an international leader in the electronic portfolio community. Our students create digital archives of their work and co-curricular experiences which can be used as tools for learning, but which also allow them to leave the college with professional ePortfolios that can be used in their job searches and graduate and professional school applications.

We invite you to listen to what they have to say about their experiences with ePortfolio and to look at some examples.
