Saint Joseph's University was founded by the Jesuits — visionary Catholic priests and educators who prioritized social justice, the pursuit of excellence, service to others, and the development of the whole person, or, cura personalis. One of only 28 universities and colleges nationwide exemplifying this 500-year- old Jesuit tradition, SJU offers each of its students an educational experience that will hone their skills, expand their knowledge, grow their faith and strengthen their character.
Saint Joseph’s University today announced the formation of its School of Health Studies and Education. The new school brings together — and builds upon — dozens of established undergraduate, graduate, doctoral and certificate programs in two rapidly changing and growing industries.
Don DiJulia ’67, longtime athletics director at SJU and now special assistant to University President Mark C. Reed, Ed.D., will be honored with the Shield of Loyola. In addition to recognizing Don with this distinguished award, the University has designated a scholarship in his name. Proceeds from the Leadership Awards Dinner will provide the initial funding for this scholarship.
Joseph McCleery, Ph.D., will join the University as assistant professor of psychology and executive director of academic programs for the Kinney Center for Autism Education and Support on Friday, June 1.
One of 36 recent graduates to begin their journeys in full-time service, Dan Soucy ’18 has received a William J. Clinton Fellowship to serve in India. But Soucy is no stranger to the region, the work and the language.
