Great Outcomes

Together, we succeed.

Saint Vincent faculty, students and alumni remind us daily that true spiritual humility is not about playing small, but rather about helping others achieve big things.

When you invest in the common good, you become a catalyst for change — whether as an educator, engineer, corporate manager, writer, research scientist, artist, attorney or a parent.

We serve

Sean Ernst, C’19, says this about serving the Bearcat B.E.S.T. program that gives similarly aged young men and women (18-21) with intellectual and developmental disabilities help transitioning to work or independent living: “I think about my brother who has autism — I wish he had access to a program like this.”

We create

Saint Vincent College offers a Literary Translation Minor that combines creative writing, languages, international literature, and critical theory. Our Visiting Writers Series brings celebrated literary translators to campus and our own Eulalia Books, an indie publisher of poetry in translation, offers work-study and internship opportunities to students interested in pursuing careers in publishing and related fields.

We thrive

Cloud-based software maker Qualtrics likes to hire Saint Vincent College graduates. The Utah-based company with offices spanning nine countries and four continents was built on venture capital ($400 million) from Sequoia Capital and other top venture capital firms. Qualtrics ranks #6 on Forbes Cloud 100 list.

We launch

Before man could land on the moon, someone needed to manage the logistics of delivering highly volatile liquid hydrogen (LH2) to NASA test facilities and launch sites. That job gave

Jim Suda, C’60, a BS in management graduate, a front-row seat to the success of the Apollo space program.

We discover

Floyd Nichols, Biology C’19, got hooked on biogeochemistry — the study of how Earth’s simplest life forms regulate climate and environment — as a summer research intern at the University of Notre Dame. Now he pursues a Ph.D. in earth and planetary science at Northwestern University.

We triumph

Suzie Cool, C’15, made her mark on sports broadcasting history in 2019 when she and colleague Melanie Newman became professional baseball’s first all-female broadcasting team, announcing a Carolina League game between the Salem Red Sox and Potomac Nationals.
