OUR MISSION / OUR VISION
D’Youville College is a place of possibility and empowerment—and it always has been. Students come here from diverse backgrounds and circumstances, many the first in their families to attend college, and they go on to lives of achievement, fulfillment, and service. They meet pressing needs in the world around them and give of themselves for others. In doing so, they honor the life and teaching of Saint Marguerite d’Youville, as relevant now as three centuries ago.
Today, D’Youville College is moving forward with bold plans for progress—including the possibility of achieving university status. We will reach out to new groups of students, create new programs of study, and continue to develop our campus infrastructure. In doing so, however, our goal is not to transform the College. It is to pursue precisely the same mission we have always embraced, in ways responsive to today’s world. This campaign is an investment in that work.
