Saint Elizabeth University

We are a value-based community made up of thinkers, doers, realists, and risk takers. Rooted in the Catholic liberal arts tradition, we help turn passions into professions and attract learners with strong convictions. Our close-knit environment grounded in a history of leadership in service to others gives students the focused education and mentorship they need to transform their communities.


1899 - The College of Saint Elizabeth was founded and opened on September 11 with six students. Sister Mary Pauline Kelligar became the first president.

2020 - On July 1, 2020, officially became Saint Elizabeth University after receiving university status approval from the New Jersey Office of the Secretary of Higher Education.


The mission of Saint Elizabeth University, sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, is to be a community of learning in the Catholic liberal arts tradition for students of diverse ages, backgrounds, and cultures.

Through the vision and values of Elizabeth Ann Seton, Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac and rooted in Gospel values and in Catholic Social Teaching, Saint Elizabeth University affirms its solidarity with the poor and its commitment in service to the community.


The Office of Career Services is dedicated to helping students and alumni connect to the majors, internships, jobs and graduate/professional schools that will advance their careers.

Student services

The Office of International and Multicultural Affairs was established to help students at the College of Saint Elizabeth, and all members of the CSE community recognize, experience and celebrate the diverse student population that we serve. Experiencing the many cultures that exist in the United States and abroad is a reflection of CSE's mission.
