University Advancement

The extraordinary education each La Roche student receives is made possible by the generosity of our La Roche community.

Support our mission

La Roche University fosters global citizenship and creates a community of scholars from the region, the nation and around the world.  The University integrates liberal arts and professional education in creative ways, empowering all members of our community to become lifelong learners, achieve success in their chosen careers and promote justice and peace in a constantly changing global society.

La Roche University offers its students a high value education which balances the reality of career preparation with the essentials of a classical liberal arts curriculum.  Its high-quality educational opportunities reflect its Catholic heritage and the mission of its founding and sponsoring congregation, the Congregation of Divine Providence, to "co-create a world of compassion, justice and peace."  That commitment to peace and justice permeates all aspects of the University - spiritual, academic, social, intercultural, and community service.  That commitment is reflected in the University's global focus, which provides the entire La Roche community with the opportunity to reach across the political, cultural, and economic divides and work toward becoming a true global community.

The success of our students is of paramount importance in all that we do at the University.  All this is accomplished not only through the provision of appropriate resources, but also through the example and caring interaction of the faculty, staff and administration, both inside and outside of the classroom.  Success is seen in the women and men of all ages, faiths, nationalities and backgrounds who, after their time at the University, go forth into the world with a desire to promote peace and justice be the best for the world.
