A Message from the President

Welcome to the website of Quincy University, a vibrant community of students, faculty and staff committed to learning, caring, and connecting with one another and the larger world.

Founded by Franciscan Friars in 1860, Quincy welcomes students of all faith traditions. The essence of the Franciscan spirit is respect for all persons and connection with all of creation. At QU you will find small, stimulating classes, with faculty and staff who know you personally and who encourage you to develop your unique talents. As a contemporary liberal arts university, our highly respected academic programs include a range of internships to help prepare you to succeed in your chosen career.

Highly affordable and generous in its scholarships, QU also offers many opportunities such as campus activities, spiritual retreats, service trips, and study abroad, in addition to our award-winning athletic programs. Whatever your interest and whatever your degree program—undergraduate, graduate, or non-traditional—we encourage you to visit our campus. We warmly invite you to become part of the QU family.

Peace and all good (the blessing of St. Francis),
Dr. Robert Gervasi, President
