HOME. Of Outstanding Faculty

The College of Saint Rose feels like home to students because of the commitment and personal attention of faculty who are deeply devoted to their fields. The bond between faculty and students lasts long after graduation day and our alumni stay connected because of the investment their professors made in them.

U.S. News and World Report has named Saint Rose a top 25 institution for professors who are great educators of undergraduate students for a reason, and that dedication to the classroom is equally strong for professors who teach in our graduate programs.

Meanwhile, faculty are encouraged to pursue research, publications, and leadership roles in professional organizations, not only for the enhancement of students’ educational experiences but for the academic fulfillment these pursuits provide faculty as scholars. Research, publications, and other efforts are vital to the academic community and the wider community around us.

You’ll Love Albany

We’re in the heart of Albany, New York, the capital of New York State, and it feels like it.

Our campus is integrated into the neighborhood, and we encourage students to consider the city part of their educational experience. For faculty, our location means proximity to museums, concerts, state government, important historical sites, and lots of businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations that enhance their personal quality of life and their scholarship. And did we mention our College ID can be used as a free bus pass?

And when you want to get away, we’re not far from the Adirondack National Park and major cities including New York City, Boston, and Montreal.
