Momentum Driven by Heart

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.

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.

Emmanuel will be widely esteemed as the college in the heart of Boston that leads the nation in combining an extraordinary liberal arts and sciences education in the Catholic intellectual tradition with a commitment to strong relationships, ethical values and service to others. Students will choose Emmanuel as the place to develop in every respect while preparing for lives of leadership, professional achievement, global engagement and profound purpose.

The Heart of Boston is more than just a place, it’s an idea, a set of values and beliefs, and a metaphor for who we are and our role in the intellectual and cultural life of our great city.
