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.

Anselmians engage in our complex, globalized society with the cultural, linguistic, and historical competencies today’s citizens need. They think critically, grow spiritually, and lead ethically, responding readily and creatively to the great challenges of our times. They are valued in their professions for deep knowledge, interdisciplinary thinking, global perspective, and effective communications—the hallmarks of liberally educated persons.

The world needs more Anselmians. Faith in the Future demonstrates our common commitment to this purpose and to our students’ promise and possibilities.

The campaign charts a clear, strategic direction for Saint Anselm, built on an outstanding foundation of organizational strength and on our current success in negotiating a fiercely competitive, shifting higher education landscape.

More importantly, it ensures our communities, professions, and businesses and organizations new generations of exceptionally educated, talented, and engaged Anselmians.




$70 Million

Faith in the Future, our breakthrough campaign for Saint Anselm College, fuels our ambitions for this remarkable institution. Our vision turns on the power of "and"— yesterday and tomorrow, individual and community, prayer and service, discovery and application, liberal arts and professional education, belief and action.

Strategic Plan

Faith in the Future takes its name from the college’s most recent strategic plan, which developed from extensive study and thoughtful conversations over two years across our entire college community. Planning began in 2014, as we celebrated Saint Anselm College’s 125th anniversary. This was a fitting occasion for us to reflect deeply on our Catholic, Benedictine mission, principles, and heritage and to envision how we will sustain and extend the impact of an Anselmian education for our changing society.
