Welcome to Salve Regina, a university on the move. Never has interest in our institution been greater. Long renowned for the beauty of our historic, seaside campus, we are increasingly known for the quality of our students and faculty, the strength of our academic programs, the variety of our off-campus study and service opportunities, our state-of-the-art instructional facilities, and the success of our alumni in their chosen professions.
Our faculty members and academic support staff form a vibrant intellectual community anchored in the Catholic tradition and committed to guiding students to become engaged, passionate citizens of the world. The economic, social, political and environmental challenges that face us at this juncture in history require such a citizenry, and Salve Regina University - with its focus on seeking and living wisdom - is uniquely positioned to shape it. From its founding in 1947, the University has encouraged its students "to work for a world that is harmonious, just and merciful."
We are committed to helping students find their own life's passion and work in concrete ways. We seek always to push the classroom walls out into the world - through study abroad, internships, guest lecturers, faculty-student research, performances, exhibitions and assistance in career planning. From the core curriculum to our undergraduate and graduate programs, our academic community attempts to live out what our friend, and the namesake of our Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, the late Senator Claiborne Pell, once stated was his own simple motto: "Translate ideas into action, and help people."
As you visit these pages, you will learn more about the academic richness of Salve Regina University, where the faculty is dedicated not only to educating students to do well in their professions, but also to do good works in a world in need of not only skills and knowledge, but also wisdom, justice and mercy. We know that the most successful students - in every sense of the word - are those who have a passion for both their work and for the common good.
