At Assumption University, our commitment to faith and spiritual growth is at the core of our educational mission. Rooted in Catholic and Assumptionist values, we strive to transform the minds and hearts of our students and shape their souls. Here, you’ll discover a vibrant community of friends of diverse religions who are exploring and developing their faith, a dedicated team of pastoral ministers modeling faithful witness to Jesus Christ, and a wide range of opportunities for spiritual growth.

Thriving through Purpose: Connect your Career, Friendships, and Goals to your Faith and Spiritual Journey

Assumption University offers more than just an education; it provides a roadmap for a rewarding career, deep friendships, a clear understanding of your ideals and goals, and the chance to make a real difference in the world. The opportunities for spiritual growth at Assumption will empower you to heed St. Augustine’s words: “If we live good lives, the times are also good. As we are, such are the times.” 

Discover Worship as Unique as Your Journey

From gathering with friends at Mass to spending time in reflection in the interfaith prayer room, from singing or playing an instrument in music ministry to beginning your day at Morning Prayer with the Assumptionist priests and brothers, Assumption provides a variety of ways to deepen your faith through prayer and worship. Students of all paths and faith traditions are always welcome.
