    • About

      Avila University is sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Our history dates back all the way to the mid 1800's when the Sisters of St. Joseph arrived in the United States from France. Their mission has been to work for the dear neighbor and therefore Avila has continued their tradition in our mission and values.

      With over 60 undergraduate majors and concentrations and five graduate programs, Avila has grown as a university with academic excellence, transformational learning and inspirational leadership.
