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 earned a 2018 Military Friendly® School designation by Victory Media. The University is one of roughly 800 schools nationwide to be included. SJU also received the Gold Level Award, honoring programs that score within 20 percent of the 10th ranked institution in a given category.
