Welcome

Rev. Dr. Fr. Eric Albert Zimmer

The University of Saint Francis welcomes you and appreciates your interest. We take pride in our heritage as a Catholic liberal arts university and remain guided by Catholic and Franciscan values. We provide students with a vibrant learning environment featuring high-quality faculty instruction and an emphasis on the importance of serving others and the community. USF alumni regularly rise to the top in their fields in health care, business, education, creative arts, and much more. They stand out as our community leaders in both for-profit and not-for-profit settings, and they give of their time to make their communities and the world a better place.

We have grown our campus west of downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana, considerably over the years as our student enrollment increased. We expanded to include a downtown Fort Wayne site, where our Business Center and Music Technology Center sit in the heart of the business community. In the last three years, we renovated and expanded the Achatz Hall of Science and John and Toni Murray Research Center, a state-of-the-art facility with multiple laboratories. We also built the St. Francis Chapel. We are expanding USF Crown Point this year in size and enrollment.

As a USF supporter, you help to continue a legacy of excellence as we guide students to become the best they can be. Our most recent Career Outcomes report showed 97.1% of the Class of 2019 are employed, enrolled in additional education or in the military. This success is a strong reflection on the quality of education and the relationships USF fosters within the local business community. We expect USF alumni to continue to be on the forefront of innovation in our ever-changing world.

If you are considering enrolling at USF, we invite you to visit so we can get to know you better and share more about the university. Our faculty, staff and students welcome your questions. The University of Saint Francis is a special place, and we hope to see you here soon.

President Rev. Dr. Eric Albert Zimmer
