Steeped in a tradition of academic rigour and social justice, Saint Joseph’s has been challenging students to lead engaged lives for more than 160 years. We believe in honouring our past while focusing on the future. Today we prepare students to lead successful lives of meaning and impact in a complex, fast-changing world.
As Philadelphia’s Jesuit Catholic University, Saint Joseph’s provides a rigorous, student-centred education rooted in the liberal arts. We prepare students for personal excellence, professional success and engaged citizenship. Striving to be an inclusive and diverse community that educates and cares for the whole person, we encourage and model a lifelong commitment to thinking critically, making ethical decisions, pursuing social justice and finding God in all things.
