Franciscan University Presents: Islam and ISIS


Our History

 Franciscan University was born on December 10, 1946, a product of the optimism in the country that accompanied victory in World War II. Indeed, most members of the first class were veterans of the war and were making use of the GI Bill to pay for their education. The school in which the 258 students (including seven women) enrolled was known officially as the College of Steubenville, and its origins were distinctly humble.

The Franciscans, Third Order Regular The Franciscan Friars who founded and have operated Franciscan University since 1946 are members of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis of Penance (TOR) of the Province of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Their primitive origin dates back to St. Francis, the “little poor man” of Assisi. St. Francis of Assisi founded a single Franciscan family with three distinct branches: First Order, Second Order, and Third Order - See more at: http://www.franciscan.edu/chapel/franciscans-tor/#sthash.OReHkNNT.dpuf
