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."

President Joseph A. Favazza, Ph.D. 

In the classroom and in the community, an Anselmian education will challenge you to find your best self.

Biology Professor Shannon O'Leary, Ph.D. was featured in the most recent issue of Portraits Magazine's Focus on Faculty.

"There’s something more lasting about the impact you can have on people versus your research output. I’d rather have one or two people say that an interaction with me helped shape their journey as opposed to having one publication more."

Shannon O'Leary, Ph.D.
