Since its founding by the Sisters of Mercy in 1932, the University has maintained a focus on student success. We are keenly aware of the need to foster our students’ potential by building career preparation on a foundation of study in the liberal arts and sciences.
What distinguishes USJ from other universities?
Beyond the academic programs, USJ offers an array of cultural and enrichment activities, including concerts, dramatic performances, art exhibits, lectures, spiritual programs, and athletic events. The University’s central location within the state provides students with even more cultural and social activities just down the block, in addition to easy access via public transportation to New Haven, Boston, Providence, and New York City. And, while USJ’s distinctive characteristics and location are important for students, they also ensure that we can attract faculty with outstanding credentials as teachers, scholars, scientists, and practitioners.
Whether you are a student, professor, staff member, graduate, family member, visitor, or in our local community, we appreciate and value your interest in USJ. There are many reasons to visit us — please join us on campus for a concert, tour, student research symposium, athletic Blue Jays team event, or exhibition at the Art Museum.
