University of New Haven

The University of New Haven, founded on the Yale campus in 1920, is a private, coeducational university situated on the coast of southern New England. It is a diverse and vibrant community of more than 6,800 students with campuses around the country and around the world. Within its five colleges, students immerse themselves in a transformative, career-focused education across the liberal arts and sciences, fine arts, business, engineering, public safety, and public service. More than 100 academic programs are offered, all grounded in a long-standing commitment to collaborative, interdisciplinary, project-based learning. At the University of New Haven, the experience of learning is both personal and pragmatic, guided by distinguished faculty who care deeply about individual student success. As leaders in their fields, our faculty provide the inspiration and recognition needed for students to fulfill their potential and succeed at whatever they do. We call it our students-first philosophy: (1) For almost a century, faculty dedication to mentorship, growth, and professional development has guided the personal and professional success of each student. (2) A proven, purposeful education which, through professionally-focused courses of study, equips students with the critical skills, knowledge, and experience essential for a meaningful and productive life. (3) A curriculum that encourages interdisciplinary exploration, educating students who will succeed in a global society, well-prepared to understand and navigate the world at large. (4) A wide range of academic choices within the five colleges, each with its own areas of focus. (5) An engaged, vibrant campus that is the right size - neither too small nor too big - small enough to feel personal and manageable, yet large enough to offer students a wide array of academic, residential, athletic, and leadership opportunities. (6) Strong post-graduation success, sustained by an engaged alumni network of more than 65,000 people across all industries. Ninety-one percent of graduates are employed or are pursuing graduate degrees one year out; ninety-six percent are succeeding in their fields within six years of graduation.
