The Heart of Our History

The spirit that guided the Sisters of St. Joseph in 1650 in France led to the founding of The College of Saint Rose in Albany in 1920, with a vision for academic excellence and compassionate service.

The first graduating class of The College of Saint Rose, 1924

The Sisters faced persecution during the French Revolution that threatened to wipe them out. But their “little design,” as they called it, prevailed. They not only prayed and served but nurtured their physical health and their intellect. The Sisters learned how to make lace so they could teach others, giving them a valuable skill and a way to earn a living. In 1836, at the invitation of the Bishop of St. Louis, Missouri, six sisters ventured from LePuy, France to establish the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and to found St. Joseph’s School for the Deaf (Carondelet, Missouri). By the early 1900s, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet had a presence throughout the U.S.and Canada.

In 1920, members of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet Albany Province were called to help create a Catholic college for women in upstate New York. The idea came from Monsignor Joseph Delaney, rector of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, who noted the lack of opportunities beyond high school for Catholic women. After clearing the idea with Bishop Edmund Gibbons, Delaney asked Sr. Blanche Rooney, CSJ, if the Sisters of St. Joseph would start the College. Albany was chosen as the site.

Once the Keeler Estate was purchased for this purpose, Sr. Blanche, with help from other Sisters and members

of the clergy, used $1,000 to transform it into a college. On September 22, 1920, The College of Saint Rose –named for the first saint canonized in the Americas, St. Rose of Lima – opened with 19 students and a faculty of eight.

A single building housed classrooms, a dining hall, chapel, parlor, and library. A garage became the science laboratory, where chemistry classes were conducted.In 1924, Saint Joseph Hall was built, followed by Albertus Hall. The College quickly became a presence on Madison and Western Avenues.

As they had always done, the Sisters learned how people around them lived and what they needed. They continually asked, “What more could we be doing, and how can we do it in an excellent way?”

Now, after a remarkable 100 years and 48,000 graduates, the Sisters’ question continues to be as relevant today as it was then. Although The College of Saint Rose will cease academic instruction in June 2024, it its mission and values of serving the dear neighbor, creating diverse and inclusive communities and meeting the needs of the times will live on through the work and lives of its alumni and dedicated faculty and staff.

Our Mission Statement

Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Science (MS), Master of Science in Education (MS in Ed)

The degree of advanced character, usually a second degree, ranking above the bachelor’s degree and below the Ph.D., Ed.D. or other equivalent doctoral degrees.

Certificate of Advanced Study

A credential issued by institutions in recognition of the completion of a curriculum other than one leading to a degree. The College of Saint Rose offers both postbachelor’s and post-master’s Certificates of Advanced Study.

Academic Heraldry

The history of academic dress reaches back to the days of the oldest European and British universities. From the basic design of this attire, the American colleges devised a suitable symbolism for academic apparel. The bachelor’s gown has long pointed sleeves, whereas the master’s gown is distinguished by long oblong sleeves; the doctor’s gown is faced along the front with broad velvet panels and has full bellshaped sleeves, each bearing three horizontal bars of velvet.

It is the hood that gives color to the academic costume and identifies the degree awarded. The hood is silk-lined with the colors of the institution conferring the degree. Gold and white are the official colors of The College of Saint Rose. The hood is bordered with velvet of a prescribed width and color to signify respective fields of learning. For example, white for bachelor and master of arts, and golden yellow for bachelor and master of science.

Caps worn with bachelor’s and master’s gowns generally have black tassels.
