Overview

Neumann University: Who We Are

In terms of our educational mission, we are committed to academic excellence, career preparation, and affordability. Culturally, our Franciscan roots mean that we stand for peace, respect for others, care for the environment, and social justice.

Academics

There are four schools at Neumann University: Arts and Sciences, Business and Information Systems, Education and Human Services, and Nursing and Health Sciences. The number of majors and pre-professional programs exceeds 40.

Neumann encourages internships and field experiences. These allow students to test their skills, discover their talents, and build a professional network. In 2017, slightly more than 89% of graduates had completed internships.

The hallmark of academic instruction is the 14:1 student-teacher ratio. Professors know students by name and, in many cases, assist them in finding internships and first jobs.

Athletics

Neumann University’s 24 varsity teams compete as Division III members of the NCAA.  In 2017-18, nine varsity teams competed in conference championship games, and 48 student-athletes were recognized on all-conference squads. The teams are members of the Atlantic East Conference and the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC). Club sports and intramurals are also popular.

Our teams, however, are about more than wins and losses.  Working with the Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development, student-athletes learn Franciscan values through community service, nights of reflection and leadership training.

The Campus

The 68-acre campus in suburban Philadelphia includes a brand new Health Sciences Center for programs in athletic training, exercise physiology, nursing, physical therapy, and strength and conditioning. There’s also the two-year old Mullen Communication Center with two TV and three radio studios, all equipped with high-end, professional technology.

Cybersecurity and Data Science & Analytics majors will enjoy the new data analytics lab, decked out with a Wall Street ticker, glass walls, and sophisticated technology.

Residence Life

There are four residence halls, all of which offer excellent Wi-Fi, air conditioning, cable-ready service, and 24/7 security. The residence halls also offer computer labs, free laundry rooms, workout rooms, and private bathrooms in every suite.

Campus is less than a 30-minute drive from historic Philadelphia and its endless sports and cultural activities. New York City is a two-hour drive and the New Jersey shore is even closer.

Affordability

Neumann University’s tuition is among the lowest for private colleges in the Philadelphia region. In 2017-18, 98% of undergraduate students received some form of financial assistance, and Neumann awarded a total of more than $18 million in aid.
