On Thursday, Oct. 17, Saint Anselm College officially installed Dr. Joseph A. Favazza as its 11th president, marking the beginning of a new moment in the college’s history.

In a ceremony in the Thomas F. Sullivan Arena, Dr. Favazza shared with the crowd of faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends, trustees, and delegates from colleges and universities all over the country, his vision for the future of the hilltop institution. 

“At Saint Anselm, learning is not a spectator sport. It happens when we study ‘the great thing,’ through engagement with communities, and by serious introspection and contemplation,” he said.

“We are committed to an education that is simply transformative.”
