  • Knowledge is Power: Creating a Healthier Future

    The recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of educating professionals to become inspirational leaders in the transformation of healthcare, public health, science, social justice, education and data analytics. Through the development of creative learning systems, Sage promotes interdependent, strength based education and countless opportunities for community engagement. As a small private institution, we promote academic excellence and are nimble in responding to today’s rapidly changing higher education, healthcare and business environments.

    “I am honored to lead the students and faculty in the School of Health Sciences. We hope you will join us in working toward the creation of a healthier future for all.”

    Our core strengths at the School of Health Sciences include faculty-student engagement coupled with excellence in cross-disciplinary teaching, research, and applied learning. Through the application of theory and scientific knowledge, you’ll learn to effectively translate research into practice and engage in the development of innovative, community-based solutions that address disparities and the needs of vulnerable populations.


    At Russell Sage College, our focus is on applied research. As either an undergraduate or a graduate student, you’ll have opportunities to engage in your own independent research or faculty led research projects. Students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels present their research either on campus or virtually each Spring at the respective Research Symposium.
