St. Bonaventure University



St. Bonaventure University is a place where more than 2,000 students are becoming extraordinary.  

Founded 155 years ago in the interest of promoting Catholic-Franciscan education, the university continues to this day to pursue academic excellence through personalized attention that reflects the Franciscan tradition of valuing human relationships. 

We instill in students a real passion for learning and living. We encourage independent study, critical analysis and original expression. Our professors are committed and approachable faculty who dedicate themselves to making connections — among themselves, their courses and, most importantly, their students.  

Undergraduate and graduate programs are offered in the liberal arts and sciences, business, education, and journalism and mass communication, and three graduate degrees are offered in a 100% online format through St. Bonaventure University Online.

Graduate programs are also offered by the University’s Franciscan Institute that has produced seminal publications and hosted the world’s foremost Franciscan scholars. The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts includes a world-class museum that enriches student learning experiences as well as the quality of life throughout Western New York.


St. Bonaventure University cultivates graduates who are:

  • confident and creative communicators;

  • collaborative leaders and team members; and

  • innovative problem solvers who are respectful of themselves, others, and the diverse world around them.


That’s why we say our students are becoming extraordinary.
