Since 1925, Albertus Magnus College has been transforming and empowering lives through its Catholic and Dominican values- and liberal-arts based education. Originally educating women only, today’s Albertus Magnus College educates a diverse, coeducational student body. Today’s Albertus students mirror our world, present and future: they are more than half students of color; nearly forty percent first generation; and more than half receive Federal Pell Grants, coming from the lowest socio-economic backgrounds.
Regardless of changed student body characteristics, what hasn’t changed are the foundational Catholic and Dominican pillars that uphold an Albertus Magnus College education: study, prayer, community, and service. And like the first women who graduated with Albertus degrees, those who earn their Albertus degrees today continue to be prepared for lives of meaningful career success and civic engagement. The magnitude of Albertus Magnus College impact and transformation has even more potential for the future.
