For more than 155 years, Seton Hall University has been a place where leaders learn. In 1856, Bishop James Roosevelt Bayley founded Seton Hall, naming it after his aunt, Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first America-born saint. Bishop Bayley envisioned a university that would be a "home for the mind, the heart and the spirit" — a place that would develop well-rounded, compassionate leaders who are prepared to serve society.

Today, we remain dedicated to this vision as we educate the next generation of global servant leaders. At Seton Hall, we teach you about more than the great books, ideas and thinkers of our time; we teach you how to make a difference in the world and how to build a solid foundation on which to lead a successful and prosperous life.

Developing servant leaders is a key to our mission. Seton Hall students are inspired to make a difference in the world, to give back and to meet every situation with love, kindness, patience and understanding.

We believe getting involved in the community teaches lessons that can't be taught in any classroom. Through the Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE), our students perform more than 30,000 hours of service each year — lending a hand at soup kitchens and after-school programs; getting their hands dirty planting a garden with local school children; giving their time to organizations like the American Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, the New Jersey Special Olympics and more. These opportunities allow you to see the world while helping make it a better place. Each year, DOVE also sponsors service-learning trips to orphanages in Haiti and El Salvador. These experiences expand your worldview and develop character — enriching you in heart, mind and spirit.
