About Us

Momentum Driven by Purpose

Emmanuel College has always been a place grounded in strong values and beliefs, yet unafraid to challenge ourselves and the world around us.

Our mission is to educate students in a dynamic learning community rooted in the liberal arts and sciences and shaped by strong ethical values, a commitment to social justice and service, the Catholic intellectual tradition and the global mission of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

Today, that mission is strengthened by a diverse student body that pulls from 34 states and territories and 52 countries, as well as ground-breaking partnerships, including the Merck Research Laboratories on campus and the Jean Yawkey Center for Community Leadership.

Since our founding in 1919, Emmanuel College has stayed true to the core values and beliefs established by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.

It's this foundation that will keep us true as we continue to grow and move forward - creating new and better opportunities for future generations of critical thinkers, ethical decision makers and community leaders.

A Centennial Worth Celebrating

More than 20,000 alumni have left our campus to become influential scientists, teachers, politicians, journalists and moreextending our values into countless industries and communities. This is why our Centennial is about celebrating their accomplishments as much as our own. Even more importantly, now is our chance to refocus as we continue our mission for the next 100 years.
