One University.
Endless Possibilities.


It’s an exciting time on our campuses. University of the Sciences, a leader in healthcare and science education for 200 years, has signed an agreement to merge with and into Saint Joseph’s University in the summer of 2022, pending routine regulatory and accreditation requirements including approval by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The combined University brings together a strong Jesuit academic tradition with the most in-demand professional programs in healthcare and science. This unique integration furthers our shared mission and vision of providing a rigorous, high-quality and accessible education to tomorrow’s leaders in a wide range of industries.

Saint Joseph’s and USciences complement each other well. We are capitalizing on each of our existing strengths and combining them to better serve our communities on campus, in the greater Philadelphia area and beyond. Saint Joseph’s liberal arts core will strengthen the educational foundation for scientists and health professionals, and USciences’ cutting-edge research facilities and proven expertise in health and science education will create a robust educational pipeline for students in these future-focused careers. We look forward to working together to integrate over the course of the next year and into the future.
