Emmanuel College was initially founded in 1919 by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. The school operated a women's-only academic institution - the first such Catholic college in New England - for many years. However, a financial crisis faced by the college in 2000 forced the school to develop a partnership with Merck Pharmaceuticals - opening up the campus to a research laboratory. With the money from this deal, Emmanuel College expanded its facilities and began accepting men as students in 2001. Today, Emmanuel is one of the fastest growing schools in Boston.
According to its mission statement, Emmanuel College exists "to educate students in a dynamic learning community root in the liberal arts and sciences and shaped by strong ethical values and a Catholic academic tradition."
