Office of the President

Here at Felician, we are educating a new generation of leaders.

Felician University attracts students from diverse backgrounds who strive to improve the world condition and better their lives. The University is a caring, transformational institution of learning differentiated by a strong foundation of Catholic Franciscan values. Felician offers a broad array of academic programs, greater opportunities for financial support, and a uniquely close and nurturing faculty/student relationship that both challenges the mind and uplifts the spirit.

Our dedicated faculty, small class size, and driven students energize our classrooms. Innovative academic programs challenge our students and prepare them to thrive in an ever-changing global society. Felician’s close proximity to New York City enables our faculty to integrate all the attributes of the nearby cultural capital – commerce, finance, art, technology and entertainment – into our innovative curriculum.

You will see exciting new endeavors happening everywhere on campus – newly renovated science labs and residence halls, the Education Commons – a state-of-the-art building housing classrooms, labs, a high-tech library, and a premier nursing resource and simulation center. We will soon begin work on the development of a new Wellness and Recreation Center (WaRC). We are committed to continually enhancing facilities and student-focused resources to make the University even more effective in meeting future needs.

In the words of St. Francis, “pace e bene,” wishing you peace and goodness.

Anne M. Prisco, Ph.D.
