Office of The President
The University of Scranton is deeply committed to its Catholic and Jesuit mission. The Jesuit ideals of a commitment to excellence and care for students as unique individuals are not only understood here, they are lived in countless ways.
Students live and learn at Scranton within an incomparable community. Our world-class faculty and dedicated staff work tirelessly to provide a deep, purposeful education to our students and to ensure that they have a transformative experience during their years at Scranton. From the classroom to the far reaches of the globe, students pursue an in-depth life of the mind and learn what authentic care for the other truly means.
As a Jesuit institution, we share in the hope that a Scranton education will inspire our students to be "a fire that kindles other fires," joining our more than 51,000 alumni in making positive change in the world.
Scranton students engage in the classroom, laboratory, internship or clinical experience thanks to the strength of our academics, focus on practical experience and service, and extraordinary mentorship. Much is expected of our students. We challenge them at all levels of study – undergraduate, graduate and doctoral – and help pave their paths to success in college, their careers and their lives.
Our University community takes great pride in knowing that Scranton students are prepared and challenged to “go forth and set the world on fire.”
