LA ROCHE COLLEGE CELEBRATES DATE OF FOUNDING


7/9/2007

Pittsburgh, July 9, 2007 — On Wednesday, June 27, La Roche College President Sister Candace Introcaso, CDP, Ph.D., carved a cake in the college cafeteria and invited students, faculty and staff to share in the moment. The cake was part of the McCandless college’s “birthday” celebration to recognize its founding date in 1963 by a charter from the Sisters of Divine Providence.

The sisters had long been involved in educational pursuits, having prepared many of its members with educational preparation to teach in Catholic schools. In June 1963, the congregation signed the charter for what is La Roche College today. It officially opened in September 1963 and graduated its first seven students, all women and all part of the Sisters of Divine Providence. Now, 42 years later, the college has graduated 10,000 students and has since 1970 welcomed a co-ed population. <
