Franciscan University of Steubenville
We form men and women to serve God and one another so they can be a transforming Christian presence in the world.
Franciscan University trains students as professionals through rigorous courses built on the Catholic intellectual tradition. Together with expert faculty as mentors, they explore new ideas and participate in cutting-edge research across more than 100 graduate and undergraduate programs. The intellectual formation and hands-on experiences they receive here prepare them to excel in medical school, graduate school, and meaningful careers in almost any field.
At Franciscan’s core is our commitment to dynamic orthodoxy. We engage our students’ hearts and souls along with their minds to help them discover their God-given dignity and purpose. They grow in their love for Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church, encountering both Christ and his Bride in liturgy and sacrament.
Our work of proclaiming the Gospel extends far beyond our hilltop campus in Ohio. Through outreach and evangelization, we empower people across the country and throughout the world to deepen their relationships with Jesus Christ and to live as his disciples.
