Sarah Lawrence College Welcomes New Director of Community Relations PDF Print Email


By Victoria Hochman, Thompson & Bender, for Sarah Lawrence College

Oct. 31, 2018:  Sarah Lawrence College has announced the appointment of longtime Bronxville resident Ellen de Saint Phalle as its new director of community relations. De Saint Phalle, an alumna of Sarah Lawrence College, said she is looking forward to strengthening the college’s already deep ties with the community in Bronxville and Yonkers and throughout Westchester. She envisions developing new opportunities to offer Sarah Lawrence as a liberal arts resource for the community.

“I am grateful to Sarah Lawrence for this opportunity,’’ she said. “I am excited to play a part in connecting people to this rich cultural and intellectual resource.”

De Saint Phalle’s main focus will be enhancing the Friends of Sarah Lawrence College program. Benefits of the Friends program include lectures, special events, library borrowing, swimming privileges, discounts at Sarah Lawrence’s popular Writing Institute, and the opportunity to engage in the vibrant intellectual life of the college.

De Saint Phalle is no stranger to the Sarah Lawrence community. She earned her master’s of fine arts degree in writing from the college in 2007. A poetry advocate, de Saint Phalle served as program coordinator for Sarah Lawrence’s John and Penny Barr Poetry Reading Series, which showcased established and emerging poets in spring and fall readings. She also helped to introduce Poetry Out Loud, a national poetry recitation contest, to Bronxville High School.

Prior to starting work in her new position in September, de Saint Phalle served as director of community relations at Concordia College for five years. She and her husband, Pierre, will be awarded the President’s Award for Excellence in Service to the Community at Concordia College’s 37th Annual Community Dinner on November 8.

De Saint Phalle served on the Bronxville Board of Education from 2000 to 2004. She has been a member of the Friends of the Bronxville Public Library, the Bronxville Village Green Committee, and the Bronxville Rotary, and she serves as chair of publicity and marketing for The Bronxville Historical Conservancy. A graduate of Wellesley College, de Saint Phalle and her husband live in Bronxville and have four adult children.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
