Since 1889, Saint Anselm College has provided a transformative education shaped by Catholic and Benedictine values and a liberal arts foundation. Here, you are part of a welcoming community where you will discover your passions, experience cherished traditions, and unlock your full potential.
"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."

Please join the Center for Ethics in Society on October 3rd, as Dr. Annabel Beerel examines the role of courage in both institutional and personal life.
We begin with a discussion of the escalation of corporate crime over the past five years, the scale of employee involvement and the consequences to both individuals and society. This follows with an exploration into how courage is commonly understood, and why so many people were and are complicit in blatantly unethical behavior. What inhibits or detracts them from taking the courageous path of not engaging in ethical misdemeanors and/or whistleblowing? Through discussions and case studies we examine why we struggle to be courageous and wherein lie the major inhibitors.
The event will conclude with a discourse on a normative framework for defining courage and with examples of how we can strengthen our own capacities for courage.
We invite you to participate in this time of courageous self-reflection. (Please note, dinner is included with this event.)
A-men is a Christian men’s group centered around community and faith. We have weekly meetings on Tuesdays in the lower church conference room from 8-9 pm.

A-men is a space for Christian men who want to grow in their relationship with God to come together, learn from each other, and support each other in their journey.
