In 1924, the Dominican Sisters of Saint Mary of the Springs, who are now known as the Dominican Sisters of Peace, purchased an estate in New Haven, Connecticut, to found a women's College. A charter was signed on July 13, 1925, and the first classes at Albertus Magnus College were held on September 24, 1925, in Rosary Hall, the mansion on the property.
Since 1926, the College has acquired several mansions, which are used for student residences and administration. Rosary Hall now houses the College library. The latest constructions on campus include the Tagliatela Academic Center, Bree Common, and the renovated Walsh Hall, which includes the St. Catherine of Siena Chapel. The Cosgrove, Marcus, Messer Athletic Center opened in 1989. This indoor sports and recreation center houses a pool, a gymnasium and indoor track, racquetball and volleyball courts, weight and dance rooms, and a new fitness center. The Center is part of the athletic complex featuring a soccer field, an outdoor track, and tennis courts.
Albertus Magnus College became co-educational in all its programs in 1985. In the same year, the Continuing Education Division expanded its offerings for adult learners to include a pioneering Accelerated Degree Program (ADP). In 1994, the College introduced New Dimensions, and an alternative educational delivery system focused on business, and adult learners, including undergraduate and graduate courses.
In 1992, Albertus Magnus offered its first graduate program, the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies. Since then, the College has added seven graduate programs: Master of Arts in Art Therapy, the only degree of its kind in Connecticut Master of Arts in Leadership Master of Fine Arts in Writing Master of Science in Human Services Master of Business Administration Master of Science in Education and Master of Science in Management and Organizational Leadership. Today, Albertus has approximately 500 full-time traditional (day) undergraduates and 1,000 adult undergraduate and graduate students from eight U.S. states and two international countries.
The College's Board of Trustees was reorganized in 1969 so that 80 percent of its members are laypeople. The others are members of the Dominican Sisters of Peace. The College remains true to its Dominican heritage and continues to be dedicated to searching for truth in all its dimensions.
