Organization Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue
History At the request of Bishop Hickey of Rochester, five Sisters of St. Joseph, newly with their PhD's including graduate study at Oxford University and the Sorbonne, founded Nazareth College in 1924. Committed to academic excellence, these pioneering women inspired the first class of 25 young women to stretch to their potential. Nazareth College has grown to be the inclusive, non-denominational, comprehensive college.
