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.

“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.”
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 Blake Room in the Savard Welcome Center at Saint Anselm College.
All members of the public are welcome to join us for one or all three sessions!
