Russell Sage College
Curriculum Focus: Liberal Arts, Health Sciences, & Fine Arts
Russell Sage College is a private women's college that is a part of The Sage Colleges and was founded in 1916 in Troy, New York by Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage. The Sage Colleges also includes a coed college in Albany and three graduate schools. Mrs. Sage was active in the women’s suffrage movement and founded the college to offer women the means of independence through the combination of broad education in the liberal arts with preparation for specific professional careers.
In 1972, The Sage Colleges partnered with the New York State Education Department and instituted Higher Education Opportunity Programs at Russell Sage College and the Sage College of Albany (then the Sage Junior College of Albany). Since that time, the Sage Colleges has maintained its commitment to HEOP and boast numerous graduates as a result.

"The primary objective of The Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) is to help provide a broad range of services to the student, who because of academic and economic circumstances, would otherwise be unable to attend college, yet has the potential and desire to obtain a college degree. HEOP is sponsored jointly by the State Education Department and the College."
"HEOP is funded jointly by the University and the New York State Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program and programming activities are supported, in part, by a grant from the New York State Education Department."
