More than ever, colleges must ask: what is our role in preparing young people for the future of work and for building a society of shared responsibility, values and justice?
At Saint Vincent College, the answer is simple: when we respect, value, and care for one another, we move forward.
Saint Vincent College is an educational community rooted in the tradition of the Catholic faith, the heritage of Benedictine monasticism and the love of values inherent in the liberal approach to life and learning. Its mission is to provide quality undergraduate and graduate education for men and women to enable them to integrate their professional aims with the broader purposes of human life. The programs, activities and encounters that make up student life at Saint Vincent College encourage the intellectual gifts, professional aptitudes and personal aspirations of students to mature harmoniously.
