Medaille College traces its roots to 1875, when the Sisters of St. Joseph (SSJ) founded an institute for the preparation of teachers. In 1937, the SSJ 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 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.
Medaille experienced significant growth in the 1970s and student enrollment has risen steadily ever since. During the 1980s and 1990s, the College strengthened programs and services for a growing and diverse student body.
In 1991, the College implemented a residence program, attracting students from across New York State and Southern Ontario.Three years later, the Kevin I. Sullivan Campus Center opened, offering students a setting for dining, recreational and co-curricular activities. With the Trbovich Alumni Tower welcoming all visitors, the Sullivan Center serves as home of the Medaille Mavericks; our men’s and women’s National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III sports programs. In 2010, Medaille initiated its online program, which continues to grow with new degree options.
When Medaille College wanted to put their school in front of a wider and younger audience, they turned to Step Out Buffalo to help them achieve their goals. They purchased a Flex Package from our advertising options, which helped put their school and programming in front of more than 275,000 people.
