About University of Saint Joseph

Institution: University of Saint Joseph
  West Hartford, CT

The University of Saint Joseph, founded by the Sisters of Mercy in the Catholic tradition, provides a rigorous liberal arts and professional education for a diverse student population in an inclusive environment that encourages strong ethical values, personal integrity, and a sense of responsibility to the needs of society.

The University is consistently cited on the national level for the quality of its academic programs. The University has a long history as a women’s college for its traditional undergraduate students. In June 2017 the Board of Trustees voted to move to a co-educational model beginning in fall 2018.

Ideally situated midway between Boston and New York City, the beautiful 84-acre Olmsted-designed campus is one mile from West Hartford’s thriving downtown, and provides an array of cultural events, occasions for spiritual development, and fitness and recreational options. The University also has an active presence outside the campus, reaching into the surrounding community through internships, community service projects, new program and partnerships.
