From the President

The publication of our annual University Report gives me the opportunity to contemplate the past year, celebrate achievements and express gratitude. As I reviewed this year’s report, I came away with a clear storyline for Saint Joseph’s: progress, pride and people.


From a historic merger to significant progress on the campus master plan, Saint Joseph’s continues its forward momentum.

The mission continues to serve as a foundation for service, from vaccinating the vulnerable to unmasking institutional bias.
