Ursuline College is a private Roman Catholic liberal arts college in Pepper Pike, Ohio. It was founded in 1871 by the Ursuline Sisters of Cleveland and was one of the oldest institutions of higher education for women in the United States and the first Catholic women's college in Ohio.
Ursuline College helps students to achieve their educational and career goals by emphasizing the whole person and providing personalized attention within a liberal arts higher educational environment. While welcoming persons of all faiths, the College is Catholic in its origins, identity, and environment. Instruction and services are based on the dignity of the human person in accordance with the principles of Catholic social teaching.
In the liberal arts tradition, an Ursuline education emphasizes critical thinking; clear and graceful expression; free, mature judgment and choice; and commitment to continued learning. In addition, faithful to the contemplative heritage of the Ursuline congregation, we perceive contemplation and reflection as integral factors in our search for wisdom. Thus, a distinctly Ursuline education emphasizes a strong foundation in the arts and sciences, fosters the student professor dialectic with its corollary of shared responsibility, respects the learning needs of the individual student, and recognizes the interrelatedness of spiritual vitality and service to the larger community.
Acknowledging that the liberal arts are life arts, we help students search for wisdom within the context of theology and philosophy, the fine arts and humanities, and the natural and social sciences. Our career programs build upon this broad foundation to prepare students to serve the community and their professions with distinction and integrity.
