In 1870, when the Congregation of the Mission (the Vincentians) first opened the doors of St. John’s University in Brooklyn, NY, those pioneering educators opened a world of opportunity to students and originated our enduring mission to transform lives. 

At that moment in time, when educational opportunities for immigrants and their children were limited, The Most Rev. John Loughlin, first Roman Catholic Bishop of Brooklyn, reached out to the Vincentian fathers with a mission to establish “a day College where the youth of the City might find advantages of a solid education.” After 150 years, St. John’s University remains faithful to the mission.

We remain committed to forging a path of mobility and opportunity for those who want to make a difference in the world. As a private, Catholic, and Vincentian University, St. John’s prepares students for personal and professional success in today’s global society while never wavering from our founding mission.

Those students and our accomplished graduates are a continual source of school pride and a powerful reminder for us of why we were founded. The hard work currently undertaken by our faculty, administrators, and staff demonstrates the formidable promise and possibilities of the St. John’s educational experience.

Being faithful to the mission is what enables St. John’s to be the life-changing place that it has been for 150 years. With your continued support, our mission endures, grows, and thrives—just as St. John’s University has done since its humble beginnings.

Your Giving Tuesday gift to the 150th Anniversary Scholarship Fund  will ensure that the University can continue to provide the same opportunities to students, regardless of financial need. Thank you.

Giving Tuesday is a world wide event and as such we have opened it up at St. John's to include as many areas of the University as we can.  Please consider supporting one or more of the following campaigns:
