The Way To Building What The World Needs

Talk to one of our amazing graduates a decade into their career as a biochemist or family court judge or any number of other professions and you'll discover why we insist on a values-based education — one that gives graduates the intellectual prowess might and strength of character needed to engage life's larger questions and work toward a greater good.

We credit today’s dedicated faculty, and a long line of their predecessors, with heeding the call of our founder, Emmanuel d’Alzon who challenged us to go beyond academics and educate the whole person. You will see that focus on students, and our emphasis on a life well-lived, in every aspect of what we do, from the design of new Residence Halls to our dynamic Honors programs to the establishment of a campus in Rome.

We also owe a great debt of gratitude to the alumni, parents, foundations, and corporate partners who help make a distinctly Assumption education possible. Only by working together, toward shared goals and across differences of age, culture, discipline, and faith, can we truly Light the Way.

Tradition
