Rooted in the Catholic and Franciscan traditions of Faith and Reason, the University of Saint Francis engages a diverse community in learning, leadership, and service.
Founded by the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration in 1890, the University of Saint Francis has been formed and guided by its Catholic mission and Franciscan values.
We are a community sustained by the values of St. Francis, values that remind us to:
- Reverence the unique dignity of each person
- Encourage a trustful, prayerful community of learners
- Serve one another, society, and the Church
- Foster peace and justice
- Respect creation
