"Saint Elizabeth University is sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth. The University is a value-based community made up of thinkers, doers, realists, and risk takers. Saint Elizabeth became a University in 2020 to distinguish the institution to inform the community that the institution has both master’s and doctoral programs and is a comprehensive institution that supports practitioner education.
In 2021-2022 was recognized as a “College of Distinction” in the categories of Education and Nursing.
In 2020 Saint Elizabeth University (SEU) received a five-year grant of nearly $2.3 million from the U.S. Department of Education’s Developing Hispanic-Servicing Institutions program to increase first-year retention and university graduation rates among Pell-eligible Hispanic and other low-income college students. SEU is designated a Minority-serving and Hispanic-Serving Institution.``
The rich history of EOF stems from the Newark riots. In November 1967, New Jersey’s Chancellor of Higher Education, Ralph A. Dungan, directed a memorandum to the presidents of all higher education institutions to propose a program of special assistance to young men and women from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds.
New Jersey EOF programs continue to empower students by providing services in 19 county/community colleges and over 30 EOF programs/enrichment opportunities in four-year public/private institutions.
Partnering with the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) would provide additional financial assistance and support services such as counseling, tutoring, and developmental course work. This partnership will help ensure the success of our cohort of 40 at risk students of the Guaranteed Education Pilot.
