The mission of Chestnut Hill College is to provide students with holistic education in an inclusive Catholic community marked by academic excellence, shared responsibility, personal and professional growth, service to one another and to the global community, and concern for the earth.Chestnut Hill College, founded by the Sisters of Saint Joseph in 1924, is an independent, Catholic institution that fosters equality through education. Faithful to its strong liberal arts tradition, Chestnut Hill College offers academic programs of excellence in the areas of undergraduate, graduate, and continuing studies.An institution of higher learning is more than a bunch of buildings with desks, books and chalkboards. There are a host of factors that come together to give a college its unique personality: its history, its educational philosophy, its geographic setting, its customs and traditions, and its relationship with the community and the world. We believe that the elements that have come together to give Chestnut Hill College its identity have resulted in an ideal place to study, to socialize and to live.At Chestnut Hill College, we provide women and men the opportunity to master their chosen field of study, to become knowledgeable about the diverse races, cultures, and creeds of the world, to grow in mutual respect and understanding of one another, and to enter their professions with competence and confidence. Steeped in two great spiritual traditions, the Ignatian and the Salesian, the College is committed to graduating students who are daring, bold, innovative, informed thinkers who are also dedicated to the service of others, to civility, to right action, and to the spiritual dimension of life. It is not enough to graduate with the tools necessary to achieve excellence in oneâ€™s profession; to be fulfilled and happy, one must graduate with the personal maturity and integrity requisite to achieve excellence as a human being.
