Thank you for all that you do for USJ, our best days are ahead of us!
Rhona C. Free, Ph.D. President
The University of Saint Joseph, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in the Roman Catholic tradition, provides a rigorous liberal arts and professional education for a diverse student population while maintaining a strong commitment to developing the potential of women.
The University is a community which promotes the growth of the whole person in a caring environment that encourages strong ethical values, personal integrity and a sense of responsibility to the needs of society.
Our students are better prepared for employment when they have real-world experience that extends beyond our college campus. Eighty-five percent of employers believe college students should complete an applied learning project.* The trend of internships, clinical placements, or field experiences is not new for USJ and our students. Since its founding in 1932, the University’s educational philosophy has encompassed learning by doing. “Applied, experiential education continues to be a hallmark of the USJ student experience.” said Rhona Free.
That is true for Janay Diaz ’18 a USJ business major who interns in Human Resources for a USJ alumna at Tilcon, Jacqueline Zimmer ’07. She will be receiving internship credits for her work and reports how she has gained workplace skills and experiences that supplement her classroom education.
