University of Saint Francis
The University of Saint Francis is a liberal arts university located in Fort Wayne, Indiana, United States. Affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church, the university promotes Catholic and Franciscan values.
The University of Saint Francis was founded by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Perpetual Adoration in Lafayette, Indiana, in 1890. The campus moved to its current Fort Wayne location in 1944 to the estate of the former industrialist John H. Bass. The school, originally known as Saint Francis College, has remained in Fort Wayne and gradually expanded, adding a graduate school in 1960. Increased athletic programs for the Cougars, primarily football, as well as construction of athletic fields and residence halls and acquisition of the Lutheran College of Health Professions in the 1990s produced remarkable enrollment growth. It was renamed University of Saint Francis in 1998.
Rooted in the Catholic and Franciscan Traditions of Faith and Reason, the University of Saint Francis engages a diverse community in learning, leadership and service.
