Franciscan University is one of 21 "faithfully Catholic universities" cited by the Cardinal Newman Society. It follows the example of St. Francis of Assisi in finding its identity at the heart of the Catholic Church. It embraces the teachings of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the Magisterium with a spirit of Christian humanism that relates all learning to Jesus Christ. At Franciscan University, you'll grow in mind, body, and spirit through the integration of faith and reason.
Faith households — small groups of male or female students — provide positive peer support, while confession, daily Mass, Eucharistic adoration and Festivals of Praise encourage students to pursue ongoing personal conversion in the Holy Spirit.
A Great Books Honors Program, NCAA Division III and intramural sports, Works of Mercy and Missions of Peace and a Human Life Studies Minor are among the many additional opportunities found at Franciscan.
