Jesuit Values: Make a Difference
Since 1872, Saint Peter’s University has offered a university education based on the fundamental Jesuit values of academic excellence, leadership, service and faith. Saint Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, knew that the body, mind and spirit could be uniquely nourished in educational institutions.
With a student-faculty ratio of only 12 to 1, and undergraduate class sizes averaging 22 students, the faculty and staff at Saint Peter’s University have the opportunity to give every student the personal attention, encouragement, and dedication needed to graduate on time and go out into the world a “man or woman for others.”
The work of our faculty and staff far exceeds the work done in the classroom—educating the whole person in the Jesuit ideal of cura personalis. As an employee at Saint Peter’s University, you can make a difference in the world, one student at a time.
Join the Statue of Liberty, financial giants Fidelity Investments and Charles Schwab, and over three thousand Saint Peter’s University students in making Jersey City your home.
Take a stroll through Liberty State Park, discover great restaurants on Grove Street or in Little India, or travel to far off lands on the nation’s largest IMAX Dome screen in the Liberty Science Center.
Feel like a day trip? A ten-minute ride on the PATH train shuttles you directly into the heart of New York City for a Broadway show, a bike ride in Central Park, or an afternoon in a world-renowned museum. Or hop the Lightrail over to Hoboken for some shopping and an evening out.
Saint Peter’s is more than a college campus—it’s a community in the heart of a metropolitan area.
