Neumann College, founded and sponsored by the Sisters of
St. Francis of Philadelphia, is a Catholic co-educational institution of
higher education in the liberal arts and Franciscan traditions.
College offers an education based on the concepts that knowledge,
while valuable in itself, is to be used in the
service of others, and that learning is a life-long process.
Neumann College affirms and respects the uniqueness and inherent dignity
of each person and believes that the individual's spiritual, emotional,
intellectual, physical, and social growth complement and fulfill one another.
Neumann seeks to educate a diverse population of students in
a scholarly, supportive, and caring environment.
Education at Neumann College
integrates the intellectual and affective development of its students. Its
programs sharpen social awareness and ethical concern. The Neumann College
community reflects the spirit and values of St. Francis of
Assisi by developing a sense of responsibility which fosters and
respects diversity. Implicit in the College's Mission is the responsibility
to offer educational programs which anticipate and respond to the
changing needs of society
