From Salve Regina University

From our cornerstone mercy mission to the classic ideals of our liberal arts approach, tradition matters at Salve Regina. It’s woven throughout our 80-acre campus, embedded in our historic buildings and infused in the culture of Rhode Island.

Tradition at Salve Regina means we remember where we began. Since our founding by the Sisters of Mercy in 1934, we have grown to a community of more than 2,700 undergrad and grad students who proudly carry forward our mission in their personal and professional lives. Fully accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education, we are committed to fueling the imagination and encouraging the academic ambitions of our bright and curious students.

At Salve Regina our tradition blends seamlessly with progress. We empower students to explore their talents through diverse academic offerings, student organizations, service initiatives and athletic teams.
