Educating the Whole Person
The College of New Rochelle provides students with a rigorous academic experience and extensive preparation for a successful career in a supportive, values-driven community. Founded in 1904 by the Ursuline Order, we honor our Catholic origin and heritage through a longstanding commitment to intellectual engagement, inclusivity, and service.
The College comprises four schools — the all-women School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Nursing, the Graduate School, and the School of New Resources for adult learners. Our mission to provide broad access to higher education and foster lifelong learning is carried out at our historic campus in New Rochelle, New York, and at five additional locations throughout the boroughs of New York City. At CNR, an exceptional faculty and approximately 4,000 dedicated students join together to form a community of learners prepared to contribute to society in rich and varied ways.
SCHOOL OF ARTS & SCIENCES
This traditional undergraduate program for women prepares students for successful careers through a robust liberal arts foundation, a strong focus on real-world skills and experiences, and a distinctive curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and individual empowerment. Our rigorous programs are characterized by challenging academics, outstanding faculty, and small classes, positioning students to excel both on campus and in their professional lives.School of Arts & Sciences »
SCHOOL OF NEW RESOURCES
The School of New Resources offers undergraduate degrees in a setting designed for men and women adult learners from a wide range of social and economic backgrounds. Students work closely with advisors to develop a degree plan that takes into account their experience and work and family responsibilities, resulting in a set of realistic goals and an attainable path to an undergraduate degree. Six campuses — the main campus in Westchester County and five in New York City — allow students to pursue their studies within their own communities. Each features small, seminar-style classes where close relationships and a shared sense of purpose unite students and faculty.School of New Resources »
