Since its origins as the Mount Saint Joseph Junior College for Women in 1925, Brescia University has had a single overarching goal – student centered education as directed by the four pillars of its mission: Catholic, Liberal Arts, Career Preparation, and Service to Others. Inspired by St. Angela Merici, the faculty and staff of Brescia University have aimed to understand the unique needs of contemporary students and to address those needs with an education customized to each individual student.
Brescia’s graduates include physicians, lawyers, teachers, social workers, business people, engineers, coaches, priests and religious leaders, moms and dads, and a multitude of other life vocations. Through education, lives are transformed and through those lives, the world becomes a better place. At Brescia University, we believe that education does in fact have the power to transform the lives of our students, and we seek to provide opportunity to those who otherwise might have none.
Through individualized attention, students are encouraged to develop their intellectual capacity and to grow in character and moral virtue. Education here is more than receiving a diploma; it is about making a difference. Brescia is focused on producing servant leaders whose live exemplify leadership capability balanced with the responsibility of service. We call this The Brescia Difference: Respect for the Sacred; Devotion to Learning; Commitment to Growth in Virtue; and Promotion of Servant Leadership.
