Avila Life

President's Welcome

 
At Avila University, we do more than educate. We inspire. We equip students for an ever-changing world. We develop adaptive learners – learners who connect and engage.  We prepare students for careers that do not yet exist. This is the Avila difference.

Faculty and staff help students reach their full potential with one-on-one attention, active learning experiences, and co-curricular activities. For 100 years, Avila has been guided by the values of our founders – the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet – to serve the dear neighbor, turn potential into purpose, build on relationships and find connections. In this way, Avila prepares students to make responsible lifelong contributions to the global community.

Our approach to education brings out the best in our students, so they can bring out the best in others. Students leave Avila ready to make a difference. In short, we focus less on who comes to Avila, and more on who they become over time.

Don’t take my word for it. See the Avila difference for yourself.
