This is an historic year for the College of Saint Elizabeth. After 116 years of providing education to women in the traditional undergraduate women's college, we will formally welcome men into these programs this fall.
I want you to know how much the CSE Community looks forward to this opportunity. We are excited to provide high quality education inspired by our foundresses, the Sisters of Charity, to both men and women who have experienced limited access to higher education.
We feel certain that when you arrive on campus or have contact with the College that you will have a personal experience with our community unlike that found in other colleges and universities. We know our students by name and we commit to their dreams walking side-by-side with them as their dreams are realized.
Today, we have 19 undergraduate majors, 10 graduate and two doctoral programs to meet the evolving needs of those who choose to study here. We deliver our academic experiences to meet our students' needs because they are at the heart of our work. We commit to working with the larger community beyond our gates to assure that what our students learn today they can apply for many years to come.
Our Catholic traditions and Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth heritage create a rich academic experience. We believe that if you are a student looking for a place to learn and grow, you will find CSE a place that enriches your spirit and enlightens your mind.
We believe deeply in preparing our students for leadership roles on campus and in their personal and professional lives. We work hard every day to make sure that students' time with us is transformational. We are committed to educating the whole student: mind, body and spirit.
Our core values of integrity, social responsibility, leadership and excellence permeate every aspect of the institution. Our students, employees and graduates demonstrate these values every day in all that they do.
I hope you enjoy visiting the pages of our website and learning more about the opportunities for learning in and outside of the classroom. I believe that as you learn more about us, you will find that we are a perfect fit for your educational dreams whether you are a traditional-aged undergraduate, an adult who is looking to start or continue an undergraduate degree through our non-traditional programming or you are an adult looking to advance your career in one of our graduate or doctoral programs.
I promise you will not be disappointed in what you find here.
