Daemen was established in 1947 as Rosary Hill College for women by the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, founded by Mother Magdalen Damen. The College graduated its first male alumnus in 1968, and changed its name in 1976 to honor the foundress of the order which founded Rosary Hill College. The college became nonsectarian in 1976.
There are more than thirty undergraduate programs and six graduate programs at the school.
Daemen College has a competency-based core curriculum in which students are expected to master critical thinking and creative problem solving, information literacy, communication skills, affective awareness, moral and ethical discernment, contextual competency, and civic responsibility. Also notable is Daemen's integration of service learning into the Core Curriculum.
Research is carried out here on a host of different fronts – spanning an innovative student/faculty think tank, to a high-profile wound therapy initiative that’s truly making a difference. General research projects that include an enormous diversity of interests are showcased annually in the college’s increasingly popular Academic Festival, held each spring.
