The pages we have assembled under About Us tell you what is happening on campus today, tomorrow, next month or even next year and offer everything from a Message from our President, Reverend Scott R. Pilarz, S.J., Ph.D., to a report on the success of our graduates. You can even link to online tours of the campus. But first… a brief history:

A comprehensive, co-educational institution, The University of Scranton is, by tradition, choice and heartfelt commitment, a Catholic and Jesuit university. Founded in 1888 as Saint Thomas College by the Most Reverend William G. O’Hara, D.D., the first bishop of Scranton, it achieved university status in 1938, and was entrusted to the care of the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) in 1942.
