La Roche College
La Roche College was founded in 1963 by the Sisters of Divine Providence as an independent, private, Catholic college for religious sisters. By 1965 the college admitted its first lay students and conferred degrees on its first six graduates, all members of the Sisters of Divine Providence. By 1969 male students were admitted to the college and beginning in 1993, the Pacem In Terris program brought students from many countries, mostly developing regions and conflicted regions of the world.
From its scenic 80-acre campus in the burgeoning North Hills of Pittsburgh , La Roche reaches out to students from the United States and other nations, offering the promise of more fruitful lives for individuals and the hope of a better world for us all. One thing that has remained constant throughout its history is the spirit that animates the institution. It is the same spirit that has animated the Congregation of Divine Providence, since its foundation 150 years ago. It is that spirit which will lead La Roche College for many decades to come. Sister Candace Introcaso is the current president of La Roche College.
