Medaille College History: Online Programsnext

Medaille College traces its roots to 1875 when the Sisters of Saint Joseph founded an institute for the preparation of teachers. In 1937, the Sisters received a charter from New York State to grant baccalaureate degrees in education to women in religious orders, and the institute was named Mount Saint Joseph Teachers College.

 
In 1968, the Sisters of St. Joseph, led by Alice Huber, SSJ, Ph.D., initiated a change in the charter that would create a co-educational college. New York State issued the charter and Medaille College — named after Father Jean Pierre Médaille, founder of the Sisters of St. Joseph — was born. Granted by the Board of Regents, this charter established the College as an independent institution governed by a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees.
 
In the late 1990s, Medaille became a pioneer in accelerated learning formats for adult learners, with classes that provide flexible delivery systems for working adults and Canadian students that accelerate their careers.  Adult and graduate programs are taught at both the Buffalo and Rochester campuses and provide learning formats, classrooms, study space, a library, and a range of student support services tailored specifically for adults.
 
In 2010, Medaille initiated its online degree programs, providing a high quality Medaille education to the region and the world.  The number of online degree programs continues to grow. Now, with many offered both online and in the classroom, Medaille provides tremendous flexibility for busy students.  
 
The growth of Medaille College throughout its history has been guided by a commitment to being the “college of opportunity” for our students.  As the College continues to innovate and respond to the higher education needs of the 21st century, it embraces this ethos even more, and has set a strategic direction that seeks to extend and deepen what “opportunity” means for both its students and the community in which they live and learn.
