PREFACE Welcome to the first edition of the Neumann University Fact Book! This Fact Book serves as a comprehensive reference and trend guidebook of important institutional characteristics – not just of statistics and numbers, but also descriptions of services and offerings.

We express our sincere gratitude to the many people in offices across campus who provided data and cooperated in investigating, compiling, and verifying information in this volume. Their support is the basis for everything we do in Institutional Research.

Suggestions, as well as general comments and questions, regarding the Fact Book are always welcome and appreciated. We hope you will help us shape this publication to reflect all of Neumann University.

History of Neumann University

When the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia opened the doors of Our Lady of Angels in September, 1965, the total enrollment was 115 women students. Today, as Neumann University (NU), the college educates nearly 3,000 co-ed students, engages over 11,600 alumni, and is one of the largest employers in Aston Township, PA. Since 1965, the College met the needs of its students, even beyond its initial traditional undergraduate programs. In September 1971, a program for adult women was initiated—this program is now known as the CAPS degree accelerated program allowing adult students to earn their bachelor's degree faster utilizing six-credit courses in an online or evening format meeting one night per week. Also in 1971, the administration responded to the need that women needed safe, professional daycare for their children while they attended classes. A child care center opened on the third floor of the main building and quickly evolved into the current Child Development Center (1973) accommodating pre-school aged children. In 1980, the Board of Trustees approved the name change from Our Lady of Angels to Neumann. The name Neumann College seemed fitting given the significant role that then Bishop John Neumann had in assisting the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia in the early days of the Congregation. Also, in 1980 Neumann formally accepted its first male undergraduate students. In 1985 the Life Center housing the Bruder Gymnasium and the Meagher Theatre, became the third building on the Neumann College campus. Expanding undergraduate degree programs and initiating graduate programs became the goal to ensure academic growth. In 1982, the College was granted approval to award a Master of Science degree in Pastoral Counseling, followed in 1987 by permission to grant an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Studies. Master of Science degree programs have since been developed in the areas of Accounting, Education, Nursing, Physical Therapy, Sport Management, and Strategic Leadership. In 2004, the College was granted approval to offer its first doctoral program, the entry-level clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy (D.P.T.). In 2006, approval was granted for the College to offer its second doctoral program, the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership. In late April 2009, the College received approval (the certificate of authority) from the Pennsylvania Department of Education to become Neumann University. According to President Rosalie Mirenda, “University status is the culmination of Neumann’s transformation. It is a catalyst for enhancing scholarship, research and service to our community. At the same time, Neumann’s commitment to its mission, core values and personal attention to our students remains the same.” In 2013 Neumann was granted approval to offer a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) program in Pastoral Counseling.

For Neumann to provide a holistic experience for its undergraduate students and to assist with the growth goals, a residential program was approved by the Board of Trustees. When the first residence hall opened in 1997, the building housed 177 students and transformed campus life. There are now three Living and Learning Centers on campus, an adjacent apartment complex (Buoni Building) leased for student housing, and a nearby apartment building (The Annex), all together having capacity to house 912 students. In Fall 2014 the Annex was not used for student housing. In 2004, Neumann University acquired a 46,434 square foot office building located at the Concord Road entrance of the campus from the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. The newly named the Rocco A. Abessinio Building now houses additional classroom and office space. Neumann University opened the Mirenda Center for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development on October 17, 2009. Located on its main campus in Aston, Pennsylvania, the Mirenda Center features more than 72,000 square feet of space including an arena, classroom, meeting and event rooms, exhibits, offices, and athletic facilities. This new, state- of-the-art facility was named in honor of Dr. Rosalie M. Mirenda and her husband, Tony, by the Board of Trustees in acknowledgement of the Mirendas' many years of hard work, dedication, and commitment to the Catholic Franciscan identity and mission of NU. Seeking to unify an ever-expanding campus, the St. John Neumann Circle was created to connect the original Bachmann Building and the Life Center on one side of Convent Road with the Mirenda Center and Student Living and Learning units on the other side of the road. On April 1, 2010 two commissioned statues were placed in the circle. The most prominent, on a high base and at the Circle’s center, is of St. John Neumann, the namesake of the University. The second, at ground level and facing the students who walk from the Living and Learning Centers and the Mirenda Center, is a representation of a Sister of St. Francis of Philadelphia, the sponsoring Congregation. Beginning with the May 2010 Commencement, all graduates pass through the circle one last time as they join family and friends to receive their degrees. In 2014, the focus on growth was to deepen academic excellence and serve the research and learning needs of students of all levels and the local community. A two-phased library renovation began. The project was funded in part by a grant from the Pennsylvania Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP). The first phase of the project was completed in 2012 and saw the addition of new learning and study commons areas on the third floor of the Bachmann Main Building as well as the creation of a media-enhanced classroom designed to seat ninety and offices to house the Neumann Institute for Franciscan Studies, endowed in 2000 by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. The final phase of the project was completed in time for the start of the fall 2014 semester, as the University’s fiftieth anniversary celebration began. Currently, the Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. Life Center is getting an upgrade. Work began on a 10,000 square foot addition to the building in late July, 2015. The project will take 10 months, with completion scheduled for May 2016. A single story structure is being added to the Life Center, stretching from the McNichol Room toward Morgan Circle and wrapping around the building, extending across the space behind the Meagher Theatre. The new structure will be devoted primarily to Neumann Media and a large multi-purpose room. This $4.99-million expansion project is funded, in part, by a $1.5 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, awarded through the Delaware County Redevelopment Authority, and gifts received through the campaign “In Giving We Receive.” It makes visible the theme of Transforming Spaces as found in the 2015-2019 University Strategic Plan.

Neumann University Seal

Catholic Education in the Franciscan Tradition The motto Veritas-Caritas receives its origin from Paul’s admonition to the Ephesians: “Rather let us profess the truth in love, and grow to the full maturity of Christ the Head” (Ephesians 4:15). It expresses a dedication to principles formative of mind and heart. The concept is likewise found in the seal which is highlighted by the Gospel Book surmounted by the Chi-Rho, representative of Christ, the Source of All truth and Truth itself. The Tau (Greek letter “T”), supporting the Gospel Book was often used by St. Francis of Assisi. For him it was a symbol of the cross and salvation; for us, it becomes a challenge to live a life rooted in Christ. The Crown, encircling the Tau, symbolizes Mary, Queen and Mother, placed before us as a model of the virtues embodied in the mission of Neumann University. The Globe is significant of the scope of influence possible to those involved in the educational process at Neumann University, founded in 1965. The whole is enclosed in the traditional Franciscan symbol, the Knotted Cord, expressive of the vowed dedication of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, the founders of Neumann University.

Library The Library underwent a renovation from December 2013 through August 2014. The newly renovated space opened at the end of August 2014 to rave reviews from the Neumann community and features flexible and comfortable study spaces, inspiring views and art work, increased access to technology and device charging, and strengthened Wi-Fi. Thirty-three networked computers, three black and white networked printers, one color printer, two photocopiers, and one scanning station (Research Desk) were made available to students and the computers are housed on custom-made pods that facilitate both individual and group use. Five study rooms with shared projection monitors for group use were created; the collaborative discussions stay behind closed doors to help keep the general Library space more quiet. The new space also includes a large and stately quiet reading room for individuals wanting to work in a serene and reflective space. The two floors of the Library are organized with different seating and noise level options to suit study needs that change from day to day. Research is supported through curriculum-integrated information literacy instruction and a Reference Desk staffed by trained and skilled Library professionals. 2,000 Reference questions were addressed by Library staff this past year and Librarians taught 118 classes in support of meeting Information Literacy Learning Outcomes established within the Core Curriculum. Librarians continued to create additional resources for Faculty use as part of the on-line Information Literacy Toolbox for Faculty.

Frances and Wesley Bock Book Award for Children's Literature Wesley Bock was co-owner of Kilner's, a store in north central Philadelphia that provided equipment, clothing, and supplies to religious institutions. As sales representative to the Sisters of St. Francis, he grew to be quite fond of the Sisters and began making contributions to the order. When Wesley passed away, his wife Frances continued the contributions. When she passed away, the estate passed to their nephew, who, in consultation with the Library, established the Bock Book Award in their memory. The award acknowledges Franciscan values in children's books and gives each year's winner a prize of $750 for the author, $750 for the illustrator, a plaque, and a gold emblazoned emblem for the book.
