Dear members of the St. John's University community:
Since 1870, St. John’s University has been faithful to its founding Catholic and Vincentian mission by providing an intellectual and moral education to students from every walk of life. In celebration of this milestone year, we reflect upon the proud history of the University and pay tribute to the students, alumni, employees, religious community, and donors who have been integral to its success over the past 150 years. As we look toward the future, we remain steadfast in our commitment to forging a path of opportunity for St. John’s students who seek to make a positive impact on the world.
Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P.President
