Educating Students of All Backgrounds and Religions
Founded in 1928, the College of Our Lady of the Elms is a dynamic, Catholic, coeducational liberal arts institution that is dedicated to educating all students of all backgrounds and religions. We provide an academic strategy based on developing a strong sense of what each person can contribute to the world, to their neighborhood, and to one another. To embody these goals, we create a welcoming community that not only enables our students to thrive but one that they’ll take with them after they graduate.
