We are a value-based community made up of thinkers, doers, realists, and risk takers. Rooted in the Catholic liberal arts tradition, we help turn passions into real-world professions and attract learners with strong convictions. Our close-knit environment grounded in a history of leadership in service to others gives students the focused education and mentorship they need to transform their communities.
Saint Elizabeth University is a community of learning in the Catholic liberal arts tradition for students of diverse ages, backgrounds, and cultures.
Founded in 1899 by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, the University has a strong tradition of concern for the poor, for developing leadership in a spirit of service and social responsibility, and a commitment to the promotion of women as full partners in society.
Through the vision of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, Saint Vincent de Paul, Saint Louise de Marillac and Mother Mary Xavier Mehegan, SEU continues to support students as they search for intellectual and personal growth in an engaged and supportive learning environment.
