Nazareth is an inclusive community of inspired learners, educators, and changemakers who for nearly 100 years have been driven by a bold commitment to action, empathy, equity, and leading innovation for the common good.

Impact experiences are at the heart of a Nazareth education, preparing each student to discover within themselves the potential to cultivate positive change in their life's work, in any career field, and in a world that is constantly evolving and infinitely interconnected.

Our broad academic offerings present a range of study options typical of larger universities, yet achieved in our supportive campus culture. Nearly 2,100 undergrad and 600 graduate students enroll in degree and certificate programs and engage in collaborative, transformative learning experiences, preparing for the professions and society of today and tomorrow.

In a learning community that purposefully integrates liberal arts and professional programs, Nazareth graduates are able to launch a lifetime of impactful leadership in communities and workplaces near and far.

Land acknowledgement

Nazareth reverentially affirms that the lands on which we live and work are the original homelands of the Haudenosaunee and we honor the sovereignty of the Six Nations – the Mohawk, Cayuga, Onondaga, Oneida, Seneca, and Tuscarora. We strive to honor as well as respect the diverse Indigenous peoples connected to these lands with gratitude for the land itself and the peoples who have stewarded it throughout the generations.
