Commencement Ceremony Saturday, May 8, 2021 Times Union Center, Albany, New York

There is no place like Saint Rose.

Congratulations, Graduates! WELCOME, CLASS OF 2020! The College of Saint Rose is proud of you. Today you become part of a vast international community of Saint Rose alumni more than 46,000 strong. You will transform lives by teaching, leading organizations, influencing public policy, writing novels, reporting the news, creating art or music, building IT systems, conducting groundbreaking scientific research, or running your own companies. Be fearless, trust your instincts, learn to laugh, and savor each moment as you did at Saint Rose. You are now all proud Saint Rose alumni.

History of the College The College of Saint Rose was founded in 1920 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet as a Roman Catholic college for women. Its founders selected the name of Saint Rose to honor the first canonized saint in the Americas. The primary academic purpose of the College was the full development of the person through a strong liberal arts curriculum. Initially, emphasis was placed on the professional training of teachers, and this emphasis was later expanded to include preparation for business and other professions. As needs in the Albany area increased, the College revised its programs to meet those needs. An evening division was developed in 1946 to support World War II veterans and reinstituted in 1974 to provide for continuing education. In 1949, a graduate school was added to provide master’s degree programs. Men were admitted to both the original evening and the graduate division and, in 1969, the College became fully coeducational. In 1970, the Board of Trustees was expanded to include laypersons in addition to the Sisters of St. Joseph. With the formal transfer of control to this Board, The College of Saint Rose became an independent college sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Albany Province.

Mission Statement The College of Saint Rose community engages highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students in rigorous educational experiences. In the progressive tradition of the founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, we welcome men and women from all religious and cultural backgrounds. In addition to developing their intellectual capacities, students have the opportunity to cultivate their creative and spiritual gifts in a diverse learning community that fosters integrity, interdependence, and mutual respect. The College delivers distinctive and comprehensive liberal arts and professional programs that inspire our graduates to be productive adults, critical thinkers, and motivated, caring citizens. Our engagement with the urban environment expands the setting for educational opportunities and encourages the Saint Rose community’s energetic involvement and effective leadership in society.

Integrity Statement Honesty, trust, respect, fairness, responsibility, and the free exchange of ideas form the foundation of integrity that supports the entire community at The College of Saint Rose. Faculty, staff, administrators, and students embrace these ideals in all their interactions and communications. Members of the Saint Rose community are committed to developing and implementing clear and fair institutional policies, standards, and practices, applied equitably and humanely. In keeping with its mission, The College of Saint Rose creates a culture that continually fosters the development of personal integrity and promotes ethical behavior throughout the larger society.

Statement of Values The College of Saint Rose values an environment which: Promotes academic excellence; Nurtures respect for, and commitment to, lifelong learning; Strives to achieve a caring, diverse community; Fosters the development of the whole person; Empowers individuals to improve themselves and the world around them; and Reveres its Catholic history, heritage and respect for other traditions.

The partnership was part of a strategic plan to allow the aging members of their order to receive care at the Provincial House and remain together, and it enables the Eddy to establish a new senior care facility — caring for the dear neighbor.

Her own career has reflected this same approach, whether it was shaping a system for thousands of Catholic school students, thinking creatively about healthcare, or helping to guide the College toward innovation while staying true to its founding values. She is both servant-leader and teacher — showing others the rewards of focusing on mission and ceaselessly seeking ways to widen that impact.

IN RECOGNITION Sister Mary Anne Heenan, in your decades as a school leader, educational consultant, board member, and leader for both your alma mater and your order, you have lived our mission of inclusivity and service to the dear neighbor. As a past chair and current member of the Saint Rose Board of Trustees, you’ve asked questions that bring consensus and have never failed to remind us that students are the heart of the College. In your leadership and board roles for many organizations, you’ve solved problems with creativity and compassion, finding ways to multiply the impact of the solution to touch as many lives as possible and serve the needs of the times. For reminding us that centering ourselves on our shared values will always bring us to the greater good, Sister Mary Anne, The College of Saint Rose confers to you its highest honor, the Carondelet Medal.

The Carondelet Medal This medal is awarded to an individual who, through working in the community, has enabled others to move toward a fuller development of their personhood. Thus is the larger human family nourished. The recipient has shown a commitment to striving for excellence, as well as supporting equal access to education, in keeping with the College’s founding vision. In addition, the recipient is one committed to the Saint Rose tradition of the liberal arts, understood here as education of the whole person, and to those moral and religious values that are consistent with Judeo-Christian tradition. Finally, in conferring this medal, The College of Saint Rose recognizes the individual for exceptional contributions to education, which, in the broadest sense of the word, is the passing on to others that which one has received.

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 bell-shaped 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 silklined 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.
