What truly sets Scranton apart from other universities is its Jesuit Education.

The Jesuit Education helps develop future leaders and contributors who will be an asset to any organization due to their ability to be:
- Creative: Driven by a desire to understand the “how and why” and to think at a higher level, The University of Scranton students acquire transferable skills that can be adapted to any industry or environment.

- Exceptional: A highly selective admissions process ensures The University of Scranton students are accomplished learners who thrive on challenges, embrace diversity and excel at “out-of-the-box” thinking.
The University of Scranton students and alumni are well prepared for the challenges of the modern workplace and are eager to make a difference in their chosen field. The faculty and staff in Jesuit colleges and universities are inheritors of an extraordinary tradition that still dares to aim at full development of the person.
