Inspiring Minds. Unleashing Hearts.

Sacred Heart University, contemporary in spirit and thinking, is rooted in the liberal arts and Catholic intellectual traditions. Our mission is to educate the whole person while preparing students to lead and serve in the world today.

The Catholic intellectual tradition, a rigorous and interdisciplinary search for truth and wisdom, forms the cornerstone of all University life and welcomes people from all faiths and cultures.

The liberal arts form the foundation of the University’s academic and professional programs. A liberal arts education provides students with the intellectual abilities and practical skills essential for every professional and career path and is the basis for forming educated citizens in an inclusive, globally-connected society.

As a Catholic university, inspired by the Gospel of love and mercy, Sacred Heart is particularly committed to social justice and encourages its students, faculty, and staff to respect the dignity of every person, to promote the common good and to serve others, especially the poor and suffering.
