Message to Students

Founded by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet, we are guided by five values that are embedded in the experience of every Saint Rose community member:

  • Orientation toward excellence
  • Development of the whole person
  • Building an inclusive community
  • Serving the dear neighbor
  • Meeting the needs of the times

During your time at Saint Rose, you will learn what it means to be a member of an inclusive community that welcomes and supports one another.  Our campus community will support and challenge you to grow and learn in all of your experiences.

This guide for community standards outlines the responsibilities that you have as a Saint Rose student.  It is your responsibility to understand and be familiar with the expectations that we have for you as contributing members of our community.  If you fail to comply with any of the College policies, you may be subject to participate in the Community Standards Review Process.  We want your experience at Saint Rose to be a positive one; in order for that to happen, we need to support one another. We can show that support by talking to one another with kindness in our voices – whether those voices are in person or through electronic means.  Then we need to truly listen to each other, hear what is being said, ask questions when we are unsure, and then take what we hear and learn from one another.

As a member of the Saint Rose community, a number of opportunities will be placed before you.  It is up to you to take advantage of all you can.   You will have the ability to learn through your coursework, service to others, leadership roles, employment possibilities, athletics and more.  There are multiple ways to be involved on campus – join or start a club, be a tour guide, serve as a tutor, be an RA.  The more you do, the more chances there are to find your gifts and talents that you bring.  As you learn more about those gifts and talents, you will determine how you will make a difference in the lives of others on campus, in our neighborhood, and across the state, nation and world.
