This includes America's 10 Great Places to Live (Kiplinger's), Top 10 Cities for Outdoor Recreation (Outside Magazine), Top 10 Small Cities for State of Well-Being (Gallup-Healthways), Top 10 Tech Hubs in the U.S. (Forbes), Top 5 Healthiest Places for Women in America (Self Magazine), Top 10 Greenest Cities in America, and Top Public Square in America (USA Today).

We are continually striving to ensure our processes, policies, and behaviors support and encourage diversity, meeting the needs of all individuals, especially those from historically underrepresented and marginalized groups. Saint Michael's College's vision of inclusion and diversity embraces not only racial and ethnic identities but also gender, age, religion, language, ability/disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, military service, geographic origin, and first-generation/multi-generation college experiences.
