One of the University's greatest strengths is its Roman Catholic heritage. For more than 80 years, Rivier's founders, the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary and our foundress, Sister Madeleine of Jesus, have played a leading role in making the University a place where Judeo-Christian and Catholic values inform what we teach and what we talk about as a community.

Rivier students are an active and caring group. Some come to campus ready to expand on the community service they did in high school, while others are inspired to jump in and take part once they get here. In the past year, Rivier students made quilts for babies affected by the AIDS virus, served as mentors to elementary school students, built low-income housing, and traveled to Houston to work with children in crisis, among many other activities. Through its Campus Ministry and Volunteer Services Office, the University offers motivated students countless ways to make a difference.
