the Emma Willard School, Mrs. Sage was active in the women's suffrage
movement; and
WHEREAS, In founding the new College, they proposed to offer women the
means of independence through the combination of broad education in the

ing College were combined into a single, coeducational, four-year degree

ment; and

rience designed to prepare students for the careers of today and tomor-
row; and
WHEREAS, Through its School of Professional and Continuing Education,
Sage offers bachelor's degree completion programs designed for busy,
working adults; Sage's graduate-level schools - Education, Health

plines and doctoral degrees in professional disciplines; and
WHEREAS, They serve both recent college graduates, including Sage
students in accelerated bachelor's/master's programs, and individuals
already at work in their professions; students can also pursue select
bachelor's, master's, and certificate programs online through Sage

coexist within a small university model institution to educate and to

through cross-college enrollment while also ensuring that Russell Sage
College is preserved and strengthened as a women's college leader and
model; and

venues; Sage now offers 15 intercollegiate sports at the NCAA Division
III level and is also home to the Theatre Institute in Troy and the
Opalka Gallery and Little Gallery in Albany; and
WHEREAS, The Sage College's motto "To Be. To Know. To Do." expresses
the timeless imperatives that underscore Sage's values of self-discovery
and excellence, the rigorous pursuit of knowledge, and the responsibil-
ity to engage in meaningful and constructive ways in our local,
national, and global communities; and
WHEREAS, For its ambitious Centennial capital campaign and year-long
celebration, The Sage Colleges has added the word "MORE" to a bold,
modernized version of its motto "Be. Know. Do. MORE" to emphasize all
that has been and continues to be accomplished and to pursue aspirations
of continuing growth; and

opportunity, MORE engagement and MORE of what has made The Sage Colleges
a pillar in higher education and in the local, national and global
