Welcome to the Web site of Franciscan University of Steubenville. I am delighted you are investigating the benefits of a Franciscan University education.
Though a Web site only gives a virtual view of a campus, from my nine years as president of Franciscan University I can testify to the warm, welcoming character of our students, faculty, and staff. And I’m not the only one. Parents I’ve met at orientation and other functions have told me they wish they could enroll along with their children!
Franciscan University offers a uniquely unified academic and faith life that helps students develop their gifts and knowledge while deepening their love for Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Inspired by the example and teaching of St. Francis of Assisi, our dynamic Catholic educational environment prepares students spiritually and intellectually to transform the culture through their future vocations and careers.
We’re convinced this cohesive mission provides an ideal education, but we invite you to come and see for yourselves. Visit our campus. Attend some classes. Talk to our students. Experience first-hand the excitement and joy of the Franciscan University intellectual and faith community.
Let us welcome you to Franciscan University. Let us welcome you into our Franciscan family.
Father Terence Henry, TOR

outreaches: summer conferences, pilgrimages, DVDs, CDs, and books. After all, education doesn’t end with graduation.
