A Welcome from President Patrick F. Leahy
Monmouth University has a rich tradition of fostering academic success through close faculty-student relationships. Our remarkable coastal location is the perfect launching point for students to reach beyond their own perceived potential. As we embrace the privilege and responsibility of becoming a university on the leading edge of learning and research, our future is even brighter.
Caring faculty and staff help unleash opportunities for students by integrating critical thinking and communication skills into experiences that extend beyond the classroom. I invite you to explore the many programs, activities, and opportunities that make us a major regional university grounded within a culture of caring and mentorship. We are preparing our students for jobs that haven’t been created yet.
Our academic programs balance our core commitment to a comprehensive undergraduate liberal arts education with outstanding professional degree programs in health care, social work, education, business, communication, nursing, and the fine arts.
We will continue to build on Monmouth’s reputation for excellence – especially through our nationally recognized centers of excellence, including the Urban Coast Institute, Monmouth University Polling Institute, the Institute for Health and Wellness, and the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music.
I am proud of the culture of innovation and collaboration at Monmouth. The energy at our undergraduate and graduate locations is unmistakable. I hope you will join our community of talented scientists, writers, artists, and scholars, and become a part of our journey forward.
– Patrick F. Leahy
