The role served by the college administration is that of stewardship. We are stewards of our students' futures and campus resources. The college's operations and major decisions are guided by the president and her administrative cabinet, comprised of senior college staff. The office of the president is in turn overseen by the board of trustees, which serves a crucial function in carrying out the college's vision and mission in a strategic manner.
We are a private Catholic coeducational liberal arts college founded in 1928 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Massachusetts. Elms College is located in Chicopee, Massachusetts, and grants associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees.
