Meet Our Anselmians
"I believe with all my heart that today’s world needs Saint Anselm College, a place that is infused with the Catholic and Benedictine values of community, hospitality and love, where the humanities, arts and sciences and professional programs like nursing, criminal justice and business build on our liberal arts core rather than compete with it. We need a place where you don’t have to choose between career outcomes and life outcomes. That place is Saint Anselm."
In the classroom and in the community, an Anselmian education will challenge you to find your best self.

FEATURED FACULTY MEMBER
Criminal Justice Professor Kaitlyn Clark ’09 was featured in the most recent issue of Portraits Magazine's Focus on Faculty.
“We’re providing [students] with the knowledge that our doors are always open, that their peers are available to them. We’re not going anywhere—just because you have your diploma, that’s not the end of your relationship with us.”
On April 12, the Center for Ethics in Society is hosting a Recovery Housing Roundtable Forum that will bring together stakeholders from around the state, as well as national experts, to discuss the challenges that recovery homes are facing in New Hampshire.

This will take place in the Auditorium of the NH Institute of Politics. Breakfast and lunch are included. Register here →

The Center for Ethics in Society is proud to host Women of Influence, a three-part series devoted to topics relating to women’s success in business and governance.
Session Three: Entrepreneurship - April 19, 5:00 - 7:00 pm
Innovative entrepreneurship requires courage, creativity, and patience, and often relies on community support. In the third and final session of this Women of Influence series, panelists will share how they started their own businesses, the support they received, and how their businesses have improved their communities.
This three-part series will examine challenges and opportunities in getting a career started, the importance of a good mentor in professional development, and the courage, creativity, and patience required for innovative entrepreneurship. Research indicates that companies and organizations with a greater number of women at the executive or board level tend to perform better financially. Consequently, allowing women to progress without glass ceilings or sticky floors is a good business decision, as well as a great benefit to the economy and society overall, particularly in a context of talent shortage. Parity at the decision-making level of an organization is crucial. Enabling women at all levels to achieve career advancement creates a pipeline of female talent and increases the representation of women in sectors where they have historically been underrepresented.
Sponsored in part by the NH Business Review.
The series will take place in the Dana Center at Saint Anselm College.
All members of the public are welcome to join us for one or all three sessions!

The New Hampshire Institute of Politics is pleased to offer the special program "Stepping up and Standing Out: Women’s Political Participation in 2024" in partnership with the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications.
Betsy Fischer Martin joins the Institute to discuss the recent poll of women voters conducted by Benenson Strategy Group for AU Women & Politics Institute and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation. The public opinion survey looks at women’s political participation and the outlook for 2024 – what issues matter most, who do they trust to solve problems and how the state of the economy is impacting their lives. And as the race for the White House takes shape, what qualities do women want to see in a candidate?
Following her remarks, Ms. Fischer Martin will join Jennifer Lucas, Professor of Politics at Saint Anselm College, for a moderated discussion with audience members.
Free and open to the public with advance registration.
