Career Preparedness and Personal Development Courses New York

Daemen College

While offering courses for career preparedness and personal development, the College seeks to instil a love for knowledge. Through an academic atmosphere that leads to open inquiry and debate, we encourage our students to think broadly and creatively, and to develop an intellectual curiosity that extends beyond the college years.

A 15:1 student-faculty ratio enables us to provide individualized attention to each of our students, enhancing each student s ability to acquire and synthesize knowledge in their chosen field of study. Daemen students are taught by an outstanding faculty, 85 percent of whom hold a Ph. D, or the terminal degree in their field. Our instructors are from institutions such as Harvard, Oxford, the University of Notre Dame, the University of California at Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University, and Yale University School of Medicine. In addition, several of our faculty members have been recipients of Fulbright Awards.

Daemen College also believes education must go beyond personal and career concerns. In this spirit, Daemen students are exposed to a set of values encouraging them to contribute to the development of the common good, one of the principles on which this College was founded. More than 50 percent of our students choose to participate in the Daemen Service Learning Program, which provides a wide range of opportunities for interaction with local agencies, service organizations, and charitable causes. The Daemen College Service Learning Program has been selected by the National Points of Light Foundation for outstanding service and commitment. It is an award which reflects the time, energy, and effort Daemen students put into helping their community, learning that, as individuals, they can and do make a difference.

Daemen is located on a beautiful 39-acre suburban campus in Amherst, New York, a community rated again this year by Money Magazine as the safest mid-sized city in America. This location, in the Buffalo metropolitan region, enables students of the College to have ready access to world-class cultural attractions, first-rate theatre, professional sports, and outstanding restaurants and shopping. Additionally, Toronto, Canada, a booming and dynamic metropolitan region, is within easy driving distance of the Daemen campus.

HISTORY AND IDENTITYDaemen College is a private, nonsectarian, co-educational, career-oriented liberal arts college in Amherst, New York . Its attractive suburban location offers convenient access to the cultural amenities of metropolitan Buffalo and the scenic outdoor recreation areas of Western New York, the Niagara Frontier, and the Great Lakes. In addition, the College is near Canada, with cosmopolitan Toronto in easy driving distance.

The College was established in 1947 as Rosary Hill College by the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, whose foundress was Catherine Daemen, a Dutch woman dedicated to working with the poor. Her faith and courage have inspired many to give themselves to the service of others. The College has been accredited by the Commis-sion on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools since 1956. Institutional accreditation was reaffirmed in 1996. Originally a liberal arts college for women, the College became co-educational in 1971, extending its commitment to academic excellence to the education of both men and women. In 1976, the College became independent and nonsectarian, changing its name to Daemen College.

Committed to an academic atmosphere that leads to open inquiry and debate, Daemen has achieved a creative balance between programs providing career preparation and liberal arts background. Dedicated to quality personalized education, the Daemen College community believes that education must go beyond personal and career concerns. In this spirit, Daemen students are exposed to a set of values encouraging them to contribute to the development of the common good.

MISSION STATEMENTThe mission of Daemen College is to prepare students for life and leadership in an increasingly complex world. Founded on the principle that education should elevate human dignity and foster civic responsibility and compassion, the College seeks to integrate the intellectual qualities acquired through study of the liberal arts with the education necessary for professional accomplishment. This integration which recognizes equal value in liberal studies and professional programs aims at preparing graduates who are dedicated to the health and well-being of both their local and global communities.

With a Daemen education, students will acquire the skill to solve problems creatively and think critically. They will be comfortable with diversity and will recognize the importance of a global perspective. They will be able to work with others and be invigorated by environments that present challenges and demand innovation. Daemen students are expected to be active participants in their own education and informed citizens who understand that learning is a life-long journey.

At the heart of Daemen s integrated learning experience is the relationship that can develop between the College s faculty and its students. Daemen prides itself on maintaining a student-centered atmosphere and a close professional and collaborative association among all members of the College community. Assisted by a supportive faculty, Daemen students are encouraged to pursue goals beyond their initial expectations, to respond to academic challenges, and to develop habits of mind that enrich their lives and their community.
