About Avila

When the Sisters of St. Joseph arrived in the United States from France in the mid-1800s, they dedicated themselves to the "practice of all the spiritual and corporal works of mercy and which will most benefit the dear neighbor." Founded on these principles, Avila University has continued their tradition in its mission and through its values.

With more than 60 undergraduate majors and concentrations and six graduate programs, Avila has grown as a Catholic university where:

  • We emphasize inclusive learning and embrace individuality.
  • We believe the true strengths of leadership are collaborative accomplishment and genuine caring. 
  • We believe the world is unfinished and our students will make responsible, lifelong contributions to the global community.

By helping students reach their full potential with one-on-one attention, high-quality academics, interdisciplinary classes and co-curricular activities, Avila University fosters tomorrow’s inspirational learners and leaders.
