A Community of Excellence recognizes the commitment, service, and contributions of our honorees to The College of Saint Rose and the Capital Region. This year’s award recipients make a positive impact on the community in their unique way, and we are proud to celebrate them. For a recap of our 2022 event, click here.

In addition to recognizing the honorees, A Community of Excellence raises critical funds to support student scholarships. The COVID-19 crisis has affected us all, including students and their families. The financial aid you help us to provide may be the deciding factor in our student’s ability to attend Saint Rose.
