About Endicott College in Beverly Massachusetts
Welcome to Endicott College!
Located just north of Boston in Beverly, Massachusetts, Endicott is a small, seaside private college with a strong community and a proven experiential learning model. State-of-the-art academic facilities partner with private beaches and distinctive residential options to create a unique and fulfilling college environment for our students. Dedicated faculty and staff guide students in their growth and learning, creating experienced and confident graduates.
Endicott has a rich history: founded as an all-women’s college in 1939 by Dr. Eleanor Tupper and her husband, Dr. George O. Bierkoe, Endicott has grown steadily since. From a premiere graduating class of 20 in 1941 to over 600 in 2013, positive growth has been the hallmark of the College.
Today the Endicott campus consists of 235 acres with 53 buildings and 28 residence halls. Our student body ranges from 2,500 traditional residential undergraduate students to 2,700 adult learners and graduate students at satellite campuses across the state and the globe as part of the Van Loan School of Graduate and Professional Studies.
Endicott is a pioneer in internship and experiential learning. The founders’ vision of creating a college to educate women for greater independence and an enhanced position in the workplace was born out of wartime and a country emerging from a Great Depression. Today, these tenets are as important as ever, as graduates compete for job openings in an increasingly fast-moving marketplace. All Endicott students complete three distinct internships over the course of four years, providing work experience, building confidence, and making important industry contacts. Historically, 40-45% of our graduates receive their first career position at one of their three former internship sites.
Dr. Richard Wylie assumed the presidency in June 1987 as the fifth president of the College. Under Dr. Wylie’s leadership Endicott has grown both academically and physically. Each semester new programs are added to undergraduate, graduate and doctoral studies in emerging fields. The campus has more than doubled its landmass in the past ten years and seen the addition of multiple new dedicated buildings, including the Manninen Center for the Arts and the Gerrish School of Business and Judge Science Center.
