Sage Engaged in the Community
Presented here are highlights of Sage's increasing engagement in the community, as we seek to forge and leverage mutually beneficial relationships with community organizations.
Shown participating in the annual Troy Victorian Stroll are Allan Stern, and The Sage Colleges President Susan Scrimshaw joined by Troy Mayor, Lou Rosamilia and his wife, Peg. President Scrimshaw is outfitted in Victorian period clothing that was created by her daughter.
By creating strategic partnerships, The Sage Colleges seeks to build relationships and a collaborative network of organizations and events that benefit from a shared vision and shared commitment.
Following are some examples of our recent partnerships:

Members of the Sage family - students, faculty and staff - have a long tradition of community service and are committed to offering their help to the local, national and global community. Following are some examples of recent community service offered by members of the Sage community.
