The Nazareth Association was formed to perpetuate the legacy of dedication to excellence in education embodied by the five educational institutions run by the Sisters of St. Joseph (now the Congregation of St. Joseph): St. Camillus/Borgess School of Nursing, Nazareth Academy, Barbour Hall, Nazareth College, and St. Joseph/Flint School of Nursing. These educational institutions provided more than an excellent education, they created a community of individuals dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge, personal growth and professional preparation.
