Rosemont College Mission
Rosemont College is a community of lifelong learners dedicated to academic excellence and fostering joy in the pursuit of knowledge. We seek to develop in all members of the community open and critical minds, the ability to make reasoned moral decisions, and a sense of responsibility to serve others in our global society. Rooted in Catholicism, Rosemont welcomes all faiths and is guided by the principles of Cornelia Connelly and the Society of the Holy Child Jesus to meet the wants of the age.
- Trust in and reverence for the dignity of each person;
- Diversity with a commitment to building an intercultural community;
- Persistence and courage in promoting justice with compassion;
- Care for the Earth as our common home.
Our mission flows from the educational philosophy of the sponsoring religious congregation which opened Rosemont in 1921, the Society of the Holy Child Jesus. This philosophy is imbued with the spirit and educational principles of the founder of the Society, Cornelia Connelly.
This Holy Child education is a clearly defined yet flexible ideal, inspired by Christian values and expressions, attuned to learning opportunities that enable students to respond to life with joy, zeal, and compassion. This is reflected in the history of our mission.
The only College in a worldwide network of Holy Child educational Institutions, Rosemont is grounded in the Holy Child philosophy which encourages students to meet diversity and change with confidence in their own gifts and in God, who has made covenant with the human family.
