The college was founded in 1958 by the Sisters of Mercy as Sancta Maria College, a sisters' college. In 1965, the college began admitting lay women, followed by men in 1972. The name was changed to Trocaire College in 1967, with the new naming coming from the Irish word for "mercy."[1]


Trocaire College offers certificate programs, Associate's degree programs, as well as Bachelor's degree programs. In addition to healthcare, students can major in other career-oriented fields, including Hospitality Management and Human Resource Management. The college is home to the oldest private Associate's Degree in Nursing program in western New York, as well as the region's oldest evening nursing program.
