"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.

Theology Professor Ahida Pilarski, Ph.D. was featured in the most recent issue of Portraits Magazine's Focus on Faculty.

"The first program in women’s studies in the United States was approved at San Diego State University in 1970. Saint Anselm College also is celebrating the 50th anniversary of women at the college this year. It is nice to know that our college joined this major change of increasing the access of women to education."
