Jesuit Tradition

The University of Scranton’s Jesuit Tradition and history reaches back nearly 500 years to the teachings, life and insights of Saint Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556). As one of 28 Jesuit schools in the United States, we belong to an elite group that continues this dedication to developing the whole person.

Our nurturing environment invites students of all traditions to a maturing of faith, self knowledge, respect for the dignity of themselves and others, a devotion to justice, a commitment to serving the poor, and a passion for truth, reflection, and lifelong learning. These personal characteristics give Jesuit graduates the foundation they need to succeed in their personal, public, and professional lives.
