“At St. Joseph’s College, I am part of a community of women and men who are committed to the mission of the College and the success of their students,” said S. Mary Ann Cashin, C.S.J., assistant professor of Child Study.
“Over my years here, I have grown in deep appreciation for the vision and courage of the Sisters of St. Joseph who founded St. Joseph’s College over 100 years ago,” she added. “I am thankful to be walking in the footsteps of the great-hearted Sisters of St. Joseph who have gone before me.”
