The Office of Government and Community Relations at Saint Joseph's University works closely with community leaders in four local neighborhoods and the greater Philadelphia region to ensure a good quality of life for our area.  Our immediate neighborhoods include Wynnefield and Overbrook within the City of Philadelphia and Lower Merion and Bala Cynwyd within Montgomery County.  Close partnerships are maintained with area elected officials, civic organizations, groups of faith and public and private schools.  Saint Joseph's University is proud to offer an open campus in metropolitan West Philadelphia that benefits and service the needs or our larger community.
