Nazareth College was founded in 1924 by the Sisters of St. Joseph, who were committed to academic excellence. They inspired the first class of 25 young women to stretch their potential. In the 1950s, the college responded to the need for graduate study by adding graduate programs, and by the 1970s, Nazareth was renowned for quality teacher education and social work. During this time of monumental change, the college became co-educational and governmentally independent of the religious congregation. Nevertheless, it has retained its original focus on academic excellence and the charisma of the Sisters of St. Joseph: “serving all without distinction.”

Leaning on its deep foundational values, Nazareth has grown to be the inclusive, religiously independent, comprehensive college it is today. Nazareth’s internationally known Brian and Jean Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue promotes understanding for living peacefully in a diverse world. Nazareth’s Center for Civic Engagement is nationally recognized for meaningful work in the local, national, and global community and for service learning. Experiential learning is part of every student’s core curriculum. The Department of Community and Belonging has its mission rooted in Nazareth College’s founding values of solidarity and social justice. These guiding principles ensure an intentional and action-oriented commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion in which each person’s lived experience is acknowledged, and honored.

The College is incorporated under the authority of the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, The College holds membership in the American Council on Education, and the Association of American Colleges and Universities.

Today, Nazareth College is a financially sound institution supported by a community committed to a shared vision and ready to step boldly into its second century of serving students.

College Leadership

Nazareth College was formed to be an agent of revolutionary positive social change at a pivotal time. The College was founded in 1924 as the nation was emerging from the world-changing Pandemic of 1918. Nazareth College was developed to educate and elevate new leaders – from marginalized populations so as to bring forth fresh potential – to advance social innovation, social justice, and social progress.

On the precipice of our Centennial, and again on the heels of a once-in-a-century pandemic, we renew our commitment to elevate fresh and innovative leaders to realize new possibilities in building a healthier and more just world. Today, Nazareth College is an inclusive, secular, co-ed higher education institution with a wide array of undergraduate and graduate programs that are constantly innovating. We continue to be inspired by the values and bold commitments of our founding Sisters of St. Joseph, including active commitment to holistic and purpose-driven education; innovation and future focus; and social justice, equity, and inclusion.

The coinciding of Nazareth’s presidential transition, our centennial, and this time of revolutionary change creates an exceptional opportunity for new vision and direction. I seek a dynamic and experienced partner who feels a deep connection with the contemporary power of Nazareth’s founding mission, and is ready to create an inspiring and innovative enrollment strategy for powering Nazareth’s next 100 years.

Managing crisis brings out the best and worst in communities. As I have transitioned to Nazareth during this time of social sea change, I am awed by the strengths in the Nazareth community. Nazareth students and alumni embody our founding values, applying themselves to learning and pursuing their life’s work with passion and purpose. Our faculty and staff are expert and committed deeply to our students’ learning and development. The ingenuity and innovation with which our faculty and staff have adapted new approaches to student learning, development, and support over the last several months is nothing but extraordinary! And I am honored to work with a strong senior leadership team – a set of colleagues that are eager to welcome a new partner in advancing our powerful mission.

An inclusive and engaging strategic planning process in fall 2020 resulted in an innovative Strategic Framework that defines a vision, key objectives, and strategies for moving the College boldly forward. The planning process focused on how our shape-shifting world will challenge and open new opportunities for our current and future students. We defined a set of strategies that will both compel prospective students to choose Nazareth College and prepare our students to be leaders and innovators in our changing world. The Framework gives us fresh opportunities for realizing and communicating the power and impact of a Nazareth education. It is expected that our strategic directions will prompt a refreshed and redesigned enrollment approach. The enrollment area is primed for fresh and innovative leadership.

I am eager to join together with the Vice President for Strategic Enrollment Management in attracting and compelling an increasingly diverse array of prospective students to commit to – and realize transformational learning and success – at Nazareth College. As we approach our Centennial – and the launch of our second one-hundred years – is a stellar platform for celebrating and reinvigorating Nazareth’s transformational role in our community and society.

Elizabeth Paul, Ph.D. took office as President of Nazareth College on July 1, 2020.

Dr. Paul came to Nazareth with an impressive career as a leader in higher education. From July 2016 until her appointment at Nazareth, she served as the 16th president of Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, and previously spent seven years as the senior academic officer at Stetson University in Central Florida.

Under Dr. Paul’s leadership, Capital University developed a visionary strategic framework to guide the university forward, including expansion of experiential learning and community partnerships, and the deepening of a learning community that values and supports student originality and belonging. While at Capital University, Dr. Paul saw the university’s largest entering undergraduate class in the institution’s 190-year history. She led the launch of the Good Guarantee Scholarship for undergraduates whose families have chosen mission-centered careers through nonprofit and public-service work. The scholarship program was designed to increase awareness of the university and to support lower- to middle-income families who too often think private higher education is not accessible to them. The innovative scholarship program has gained local, regional, and national attention.

Along with championing access and success for those traditionally underserved by higher education, Dr. Paul considers it a moral imperative of higher education to actively partner in innovation, ideas, and learning approaches that extend beyond established boundaries to build community capacity and tackle social challenges. She is an engineer of neighborhood-based community-engaged and experiential learning programs, local and global, garnering national recognition.

Prior to her work at Capital University, she served at Stetson University first as Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs, and then in 2015, as Provost and Executive Vice President. She was also a tenured professor of psychology. She was Vice Provost and professor of psychology at The College of New Jersey from 1992-2009.

Well-known as a thought leader on learning innovation, strategic planning, and building inclusive communities, Dr. Paul has held national leadership roles in key higher education initiatives, including undergraduate research. She was President of the Council on Undergraduate Research and a long-term member of the Board of Directors of the National Association of College and University Business Officers, and currently serves on the Council of Independent Colleges Board of Directors and serves as Treasurer of the Bonner Foundation Board of Trustees.

Dr. Paul holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a doctorate in personality psychology, both from Boston University. She did a pre-doctoral training fellowship with the National Institute of Mental Health and earned a certificate in higher education administration from Harvard Institute for Educational Management.

Statement of Diversity and Inclusion

Reviewed by the Campus Community (Faculty, Staff, and Students) Endorsed by the Faculty Senate (12.02.2016)

Preamble:  Nazareth College embraces a society that is both diverse and inclusive, and values both respect for the person and freedom of speech. Respect for the dignity of all people is an essential part of the College’s tradition, mission, and vision for the future as we advance a socially just and equitable community. The College promotes civility and denounces acts of hatred, violence, and/or intolerance.

Statement:  We define diversity as a continuum of individual, group, and social differences, both visible and invisible. This definition compels us to confront inherent privilege, power, and marginalization to achieve equity and social justice. Diversity at Nazareth is concerned with, but not limited to: race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religious and spiritual belief, ability, national origin, veteran status, age, and those individuals with cultural characteristics that have been historically underrepresented and underserved.

Nazareth College is dedicated to inclusion, the active pursuit of conscious and sustained practices and processes that value and respect differences. This commitment to diversity and inclusion informs our curriculum, teaching, learning, scholarship, creative activities, co-curricular activities, residential life, community involvement, and support of these endeavors by the Nazareth Community.

This commitment includes:

  • engaging in a continual process of education, critical self-reflection and dialogue regarding privilege, power, and marginalization,
  • promoting greater access and inclusion through systemic and structural change, and
  • ensuring that all students, faculty, and staff reach their fullest potential individually and collectively.

This endeavor is essential in meeting the goal of preparing our students and ourselves for meaningful lives in a diverse and global society.
