Elizabeth Seton Medal Recipients

The Elizabeth Seton Medal, the College’s highest honor, is named after the native New Yorker, Saint, and founder of the Sisters of Charity. It is awarded in recognition of outstanding achievements, generosity of spirit, and extraordinary self-sacrifice.

Starting with the early 1960’s, the award has been given to distinguished alumnae/i, Sisters of Charity, Trustees, retiring presidents of the College, and friends of the College whose achievements, contributions, and service to others have been exceptionally meritorious. The late former President and alumna Corazon Aquino was also a recipient of this medal.
