Mission and Vincentian Heritage

Founded in 1870, St. John’s is a Catholic and Vincentian university that prepares students for personal and professional success in today’s global society. The University is committed to serving those in need as St. Vincent de Paul did, and is committed to combating the root causes of injustice while helping to create a more equitable world.

Success at St. John's

"We were raised to be socially conscious,” Fonjoe said. He and Doh created the foundation because “we had to do something” about the poverty they saw whenever they visited Bali.”
