Welcome to Brescia! You’ve joined a small close-knit campus where everyone knows each other by name. Founded in 1919 by the Ursuline Sisters, strong women of faith who are committed to social justice, community service, and the development of women. While our roots are in the Catholic faith, we are open to – and embrace – women of all faiths.
Brescia’s mission is focused on academic excellence where we create an actively engaged student experience, educating women to think critically and to participate actively in society. A Catholic university college in the Ursuline tradition, we prepare our graduates to lead with wisdom, justice and compassion in a changing world.
You can expect your time at Brescia to be a memorable; our faculty and staff are top notch and our bold students are smart and aware. Welcome to the Brescia family!
