As a private institution known for its student-centered, personal approach to higher education, Salve Regina University provides a learning experience that transcends the advantages of a liberal arts foundation to include the knowledge and skillsets inherent in professional programs of study. In keeping with our Mercy mission and Catholic intellectual tradition, Salve Regina graduates have proven to be engaged, globally aware citizens committed to making a positive impact on society as well as in their chosen fields.
Drawing inspiration from our ocean-side environment, our campus community is collaborative, caring and compassionate. We believe in the power of Mercy to change the world and encourage all members of our community to engage not only in academic innovation and excellence, but also in empowering others by turning empathy into action. We believe that true leadership works in harmony with justice and that it is our responsibility to prepare our students for the leadership challenges of modern life. Our purpose is education. Our promise is to make a difference.
