aint Vincent is a Catholic, Benedictine college of the liberal arts and sciences. The mission of the College is “to provide quality undergraduate and graduate education for men and women to enable them to integrate their professional aims with the broader purpose of human life.” Because of a committed, highly credentialed faculty, Saint Vincent College has earned a national reputation for the rigor of its programs and the success of its graduates. Saint Vincent College has been repeatedly recognized on Washington Monthly’s national list of best Liberal Arts Colleges based on social mobility, research and service, as well as listed in its “Best Bang for the Buck” in the Northeast, in the publication’s 2017 rankings. Our Catholic, Benedictine tradition emphasizes the search for truth through the liberal arts and sciences in a broad spiritual context of ultimate meaning and moral values. The rapid technological changes of our digital age have had a profound impact on how we prepare our students for the moral and ethical challenges and opportunities they will face in shaping a better world. Pope Francis has written about the “urgent need for radical change” in contemporary education which so often lacks a spiritual context: “Our generation will show that it can rise to the promise found in each young person when we . . . create the material and spiritual conditions for their full development; to give them a solid basis on which to build their lives; to guarantee their safety and their education to be everything they can be” (Laudato Si’ 2015). We have chosen the motto of Archabbot Boniface Wimmer as the driving spirit of our strategic plan and capital campaign: Forward, Always Forward. We are grateful that Saint Vincent is recognized as an outstanding college. With your support and our hard work, we will become an even better college. That we do so is important for our students, for America, and for the world in which we live. May God be gracious and bless us.
