Founder's Week 2023: Vincentian Mission Orientation (VMO) Module I: Faithful to the Mission since 1870 (virtual)

St. John’s University was founded in 1870…but why were we founded? Why Brooklyn? Why the name “St. John’s?” What does St. Vincent de Paul and “poverty and social justice” have to do with any of it?

As we celebrate Founder's Week 2023, join us for the first of three online modules as we examine these questions - and more - as the foundation of our Catholic, Vincentian, Metropolitan and Global University Mission.
