You are here

Thank you for taking the time to explore Medaille College. Welcome to Medaille!

Whether this is your first glance or a deeper dive into who we are, you’ll see a community of scholars from varied social and economic backgrounds, coming together to pursue individual and collective excellence. At the center of our College crest is ΣΟΦΙΑ, the Greek word for “wisdom.” Beyond knowledge, we seek wisdom – “to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield” (Tennyson’s “Ulysses”). 

We are here to educate and develop, challenge and support each other. While many might think that this refers only to the student body, at Medaille College, this goal includes everyone – students, faculty and staff.  We are all strong advocates of life-long learning, fully invested in the success of our students. Our faculty are extremely committed to their own development as teachers and scholars. They are regional and national experts in business, the sciences, communication, education, leadership, psychology, veterinary technology and more. They are scholars, but more importantly, they are professionals in their fields.   Our staff are equally committed to their development as professionals and educators as well.  

We are proud to be known as Buffalo’s College. And we are rapidly becoming Rochester’s College. We are actively engaged and committed to our community. And we seek to contribute to the ongoing development and support of this amazing region. We are bold and deliberate. We are caring. We seek to live with integrity. 

In joining us, you will be challenged to discover and develop the authentic you – the you on a path towards your fullest potential.
