About | Springfield College
We live our history. Every day.

Our story isn’t just something we tell people. It’s something we show them. It's something we live.

Since 1885, Springfield College has made a difference in the world. Our commitment to the Humanics philosophy is what sets us apart. You may be asking, “what is that?” We’re always happy to share. The Humanics philosophy calls for educating students in spirit, mind, and body for leadership in service to others. No one else has it. We focus on helping students develop the whole person so they can serve as leaders in their communities, organizations, companies–wherever their next steps take them.

Commitment to Health

In adopting the Okanagan Charter, and continually working towards a healthier campus community in people, place, and planet, Springfield College maintains its position of leadership by reinforcing our commitment to health and well-being. A healthy campus for all will improve the lives of those who live, study, and work here.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that Springfield College stands on the traditional homelands of the Indigenous Algonkian people known as “Agawam.” The Agawam were closely related and diplomatically connected to the Quaboag to the East; the Podunk to the South; the Woronoco to the West; and the Nonotuck, Pocumtuck, and Sokoki to the North. We acknowledge the memory of these Indigenous nations who, after having inhabited this land for more than 10,000 years, were displaced in the 1600s to 1700s by English colonial settlers who exploited Native generosity and provoked warfare.  We acknowledge the surviving Native nations of what is now called “New England”: the Nipmuc and the Wampanoag to the East; the Mohegan and Pequot and Schaghticoke to the South; the Mohican to the West; and the Abenaki to the North. We affirm, honor, and respect the sovereignty of these and hundreds of other Native American nations across North America that survive today. 

Our Facilities

Springfield College boasts top-notch facilities that combine function with artistry, while maintaining the historic beauty of the campus.

In 2017, we completed renovations on our 45-year-old Babson Library to convert it into a modern learning commons that now serves as the center for academic life on campus. 

In 2023, we opened a brand new Health Sciences Center empowering transformative approaches to education, career enhancement, service, research, and leadership in healthcare.
