Mission and History Mission Statement Quincy University stands as a Catholic, independent, liberal arts institution of higher learning in the Franciscan tradition. Inspired by the spirit of Francis and Clare of Assisi, we respect each person as a sister or brother with dignity, value, and worth. We work for justice, peace, and the integrity of creation. We prepare men and women for leadership and for the transforma- tion of the world by educating them to seek knowledge that leads to wisdom. We welcome and invite all to share our spirit and life. History and Heritage Christ said to St. Francis of Assisi, Go, rebuild my Church which, as you see, is falling into ruin. From that moment over 800 years ago to the present day, this has been the mission of the Order of Friars Minor, commonly known as Franciscans after the name of their founder, St.
8 Francis. The Order includes many thousands of men and women who take the vows of religious life and many more Christian faithful who belong to the Secular Franciscan Order. The center of their life is to live as St. Francis, bringing aid to those who most need help. The history and heritage of Quincy University began and continues as part of the story of the Franciscan Order, and specifically of the Sacred Heart Province of the Order. Franciscan vision channels the power of wisdom in service to others. This vision inspired Franciscan friars from Germany arriving as missionaries to rural Illinois in 1858. Among the first initiatives of these friars of the Sacred Heart Province stands the foundation of a college at Quincy in 1860. The friars, immediately responsive to the need for education in frontier Il- linois, served this need by providing liberal arts education in the Catholic Franciscan tradition.
9 They originally named the institution St. Francis Solanus College after a Hispanic missionary hero of the Franciscan outreach in the Western Hemisphere. Their missionary spirit animates the mission of the University down to the present. Years of growth and development followed. The State of Illinois chartered the college in 1873. In 1917, the institution was renamed Quincy College and Seminary in recognition of the community's support. The admission of women in 1932 represented another milestone. After World War II, enrollment surged with a corresponding increase in faculty both friar and lay. The College later was accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities in 1954. The college o cially adopted the name Quincy College in 1970. And an historic change in 1993 resulted in a new status and a new name: Quincy University a Catholic, independent, liberal arts institution of higher learning that stands in the centuries old Franciscan, Christian tradition of education.
10 Recalling the words of one Franciscan friar in recognition of the institution's 150th Anniversary, Quincy University continues to prepare women and men who will be instruments of peace, forgiveness, truth, freedom, hope, joy and love for this world.. 4 2018-2019 ACADEMIC CATALOG Quincy University GENERAL INFORMATION.
