Rivier University, formerly Rivier College, is a private Catholic liberal arts university located in Nashua, New Hampshire

Founded in 1933 by the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary, Rivier College is a Catholic institution of higher education dedicated to transforming hearts and minds to serve the world. As a co-educational institution of higher learning, the College is dedicated to the education of undergraduate and graduate students in both the liberal arts and professional courses of study. Committed to the faith heritage, intellectual tradition, and social teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, the College educates the whole person in the context of an academic community that cultivates critical thought, sound judgment, and respect for all people. This community supports the intellectual growth of all its members while offering them opportunities for social, cultural, moral, and spiritual development. The challenge to the College community is to search for truth through the dialogue between faith and reason. Rivier creates an environment in which integrated learning is the shared responsibility of students, faculty, staff, and administrators, and is pursued in all the curricular and co-curricular programs of the College. To participate in the life of Rivier College is to strive for academic excellence, to take responsibility for ourselves and for others, and to engage in dialogue about basic human issues facing society, especially the plight of the poor and powerless. The College extends to all of its members and also to the greater community an invitation to join in intellectual inquiry and dialogue.

Named in honor of Blessed Anne-Marie Rivier, foundress of the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary, Rivier College was founded in 1933 by the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary in Hudson, New Hampshire. In 1941, the college moved to its current location in Nashua where it became Rivier University on July 1, 2012.
