Office of the President - Rev. Philip L. Boroughs, S.J.


As the oldest Catholic college in New England, Holy Cross has been providing the very finest in undergraduate, liberal arts education for more than 160 years. Today, though much has changed, we are committed to the same Jesuit tradition that enlivened our campus in its earliest days. Our mission dedicates us to educating the whole person — academically, spiritually, and personally — so that upon graduation, our students can think critically and act conscientiously in the greater world. To use words that are heartily embraced by our students, we educate "men and women for others."

I hope you'll find much to enjoy and discover about our College and our community in these pages, including more about the College's mission, our Jesuit heritage, and our priorities as Holy Cross continues to move forward.
