Emmanuel College's longstanding tradition as a trailblazing institution began with its founding by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur in 1919 as New England's first Catholic college for women. Today, Emmanuel continues to honor this powerful and timeless legacy as a coeducational academic institution with a solid grounding in the Catholic intellectual tradition. Service and social justice have always played pivotal roles in Emmanuel's approach to education; the College remains committed to ensuring that every student graduates with an ethical framework that inspires them to apply their talents and intelligence in service to the world.

Emmanuel is affiliated with the Colleges of the Fenway, a six-college consortium of neighboring institutions that enrich academic and student life for students.
