Villanova University is a Roman Catholic institution based on the teachings of St. Augustine located in Radnor Township, a suburb northwest of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1842 by the Augustinian monastic order. Villanova University, is named after Saint Thomas of Villanova, the oldest and largest Catholic university in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, USA.

Discover how Villanova University can prepare you to meet the challenges of the 21st century and how you, in turn, may share your talents with Villanova and the world.

Effective August 14th 2000, Dr. Barbara Wall, Assistant Dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences was appointed Special Assistant to the President for Mission, and head the Office for Mission Effectiveness. In Father Dobbin's announcement, five goals were identified for the new office:

* To facilitate Villanova University's focused commitment to living out its mission in every facet of University life;

* To craft for Villanova University, in collaboration with faculty, students, and staff, an inclusive vision of the Catholic    intellectual Tradition, in all its complexity;

* To provide initiatives that address our Augustinian intellectual and moral heritage, the relationship between faith and    reason, and Catholic Social Teaching;

* To encourage programs and research on contemporary problems, such as "the protection of nature," and the    "search for peace and political stability." (Pope John Paul II); and

* To extend the Augustinian mission and the work of Villanova University in ways which will assure its contribution to    the continued social and spiritual transformation of our world
