Just as St. Vincent de Paul inspired leadership in his day, St.
John’s continues in his path, providing students with the skills
and competencies needed to become ethical citizens and
leaders in their fields to make a difference in the world.
“St. John’s University’s
continuing transformation into a global education leader is being
accomplished by honoring its Vincentian commitment to prepare
students to be successful leaders who translate ideas into action.
Critical thinking, active learning, intensive writing, academic
service-learning, leadership acumen and exposure to 21st-century
concepts and professional tools are the hallmarks of the St. John’s
