Elms is a Catholic liberal arts institution, seeking to educate students who have distinguished themselves inside and outside the classroom. The College offers undergraduate and graduate programs leading to associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees, and certificates of advanced graduate studies. Our mission is to provide rigorous academic challenges in preparation for careers and for life, enabling you to leave Elms College richer than you started rooted in faith, educated in mind, compassionate in heart, responsive to civic and social obligations, and capable of adjusting to change without compromising principle. At the core of our success is the ability to build relationships and developing a sense of community that our students thrive in, and one that they take with them as they graduate. The strong sense of what we can contribute to the world, to our neighborhood, and to one another, is what we nurture in our curriculum, our strategic decisions, and our students.
