Edward R. Leahy Jr. Hall

Edward R. Leahy Jr. Hall

Our success as a world-class University has come from making bold decisions at remarkable moments of opportunity in the restless pursuit of the Magis. The Edward R. Leahy Jr. Hall will provide an advanced facility to match the exceptional reputations already established by our physical therapy, occupational therapy and exercise science programs and will help grow these important academic departments.

Transformational Investments

Assemble the smartest and most dedicated people, provide the resources and facilities they need, maintain an extraordinary commitment to what St. Ignatius Loyola called cura personalis, and they will set the world on fire. 

With this seemingly simple formula, The University of Scranton has developed into a 21st century living and learning environment. 

The Edward R. Leahy Jr. Hall will house the undergraduate and graduate departments of Exercise Science, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy. The center will amplify the student experience and bring together people in new and exciting ways in which they can learn, create and innovate.

Critical Care, Critical Demand

The fields of occupational therapy and physical therapy are among the world’s fastest-growing and in-demand occupations.

Our goal is to prepare compassionate and holistically trained professionals with a solid liberal arts and science foundation that emphasizes evidence-based practice and research. We strive to develop in students a keen sense of ethical responsibility, with sensitivity to global diversity and social justice issues, as they embrace their vocation.
