Ethically Minded and Academically Strong
At DeSales, a Catholic University founded on Salesian values, you’ll find a positive attitude and a belief that big results come from small actions. We place
an emphasis on academics, personalized attention, career and graduate school preparation, and core values, because it’s
not just about developing minds, it’s about building the whole person. Here, we prepare students to become people
of character who go forth with the motivation to view each day as an opportunity to make good things happen.
DeSales University is named for a man who lived more than 400 years ago, but whose lessons are still timely and practical
for today's world.
St. Francis de Sales was known as "The Gentleman Saint," and his spirit of optimism, hope, freedom and confidence in
God's love prompts us to please God by doing everything - big or small enthusiastically and well.
