I am very proud to serve as the President of The College of Saint Rose, an institution that was founded in 1920
by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet with the goal of increasing access to education for those who were underrepresented. At that time, it was women. Today, The College of Saint Rose still focuses on expanding educational access for all, including groups that are not equally represented on college and university campuses.
That means the student from Nigeria may sit in class next to a soccer player from Denver. A veteran student who spent years serving our country overseas may find herself engaged in lab work with a student from the Bronx, who is the first-person in his family to attend college.
This diversity is our strength, and it is what will carry Saint Rose into its next 100 years. I am happy to share our mission and our success stories with you.
