Attracting and Supporting Outstanding People

A university is, at its core, the product of the people it attracts and a union of individuals in service of learning.

Truly talented students, a leading faculty, and professional staff are all required for Colgate to be among the finest colleges and universities in the nation. Colgate, therefore, must take those new steps necessary to ensure that it attracts students, faculty, and staff of remarkable promise and achievement.
