In a statement, Sally Cleary, vice president for institutional advancement, said that “when the College of Saint Elizabeth was founded in 1899, its mission was to serve where there was need –  educating young women. Today, that need may include the education of young men.”

The board of trustees has stated that if the undergraduate residential college were to go co-ed, the earliest possible date would be the fall of 2016.
