Faith in the Future

“Being part of the Faith in the Future Campaign has been the perfect way to express gratitude for all that Saint Anselm has provided us and to express faith in all that we hope the college will achieve in the future. I truly believe that Saint Anselm College is a worthy investment of time and philanthropic support. Many of our students who volunteer with our community partners always return to campus changed and delighted to discover that the more you give to others, the more you get back in return.”

The World Needs More Anselmians

Our faith is made visible in our graduates: men and women who are ethical, compassionate, and creative—who think, speak, and act with clarity and conviction.

Educated according to 15 centuries of proven Catholic, Benedictine principles, our alumni and students are distinguished by their lives of meaning, leadership, and achievement.

  • In a world where ethical confusion gives rise to global crises, Anselmians act with character and integrity.
  • In a world where ideas are often shouted rather than discussed, Anselmians speak with insight, conviction, and civility.
  • In a world where differences and disputes engender violence and conflict, Anselmians bring empathy, faith, and reason.

Believe in the Future

“God has given the Saint Anselm College community so many blessings over the past century and a quarter. Our prayer is that the work this campaign makes possible will both enliven our faith and secure our future.”

— Abbot Mark A. Cooper, O.S.B., ’71, H.D. ’04, Chancellor
