History of Neumann University When the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia opened the doors of Our Lady of Angels College in September, 1965, the total enrollment was 115 female students. Today, as Neumann University (NU), the university educates nearly 3,000 co-ed students, engages over 13,840 alumni, and is one of the largest employers in Aston Township, PA. Since 1965, the College has 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 by 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 Thomas A. Bruder, Jr. 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 Business, and Strategic Leadership. In 2004, the College was granted approval to offer its first doctoral program, the entry-level clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT). In 2006, approval was granted for the College to offer its second doctoral program, the EdD 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 former 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 (PhD) 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, and an adjacent apartment complex (Buoni Building) leased for student housing, all together having capacity to house more than 800 students. 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 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. 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 Bruder 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. In 2014, the focus on academic excellence and student learning continued. A two-phased library renovation was completed. The first phase of the project was completed in 2012 with the addition of new learning and study commons areas on the third floor, the creation of a media-enhanced classroom designed to seat 90, 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. In 2016, a new $5 million, 10,000-square-foot addition to the Bruder Life Center was completed. The addition, named the John J. Mullen Communication Center, was built to support students in the Communication and Digital Media (CDM) major and students who join Neumann Media to explore their creative talents. The Mullen Communication Center houses two TV studios with the latest camera, broadcasting, recording and editing technology; Wenger rooms with sound isolation for recording and editing; a student meeting room; a green room; and a multipurpose hall with theatrein-the-round capability, smart board TVs, giant projection screens, and more. In spring 2017, Forward with Faith, a special campaign, was begun to honor the legacy of former President Dr. Rosalie Mirenda, and her husband, Tony, for their years of leadership, vision, and commitment to students and the University’s Catholic Franciscan mission. The campaign has three components. A 25,000-square-foot Student Life and Health Sciences Center, an addition to the Rocco Abessinio Building, will be built to facilitate the education of nurses, physical therapists, athletic trainers, and exercise and nutrition specialists. The Campaign will also enhance the endowment for the Institute for Franciscan Studies, ensuring Neumann University’s Catholic Franciscan character and identity through integration of mission into the University’s academic instruction. The third Campaign component will enrich the endowment for the Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development (ISSCD), founded in 1999, to ensure its unique and distinctive ministry that supports the practical application of the role of sport in the spiritual, faith, character and leadership development of student-athletes.

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 newly renovated Library space opened at the end of August 2014 to rave reviews and continues to be a popular destination for all members of the Neumann community! The new space 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, black and white and color printing, and photocopying and scanning were made available to students. The computers are housed on custom-made pods that facilitate both individual and group use. Five group study rooms were added that can each be scheduled online and are equipped with large projection monitors, white boards, and seating for up to five people; collaborative discussions stay behind closed doors to help keep the general Library space quieter and users can hook up their own laptop or make use the of the computer provided in each room. 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 Research Desk staffed by trained and skilled Library professionals. 4,000 Reference questions were addressed by Library staff this past year and Librarians taught 100 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. The Library collection contains approximately 53,000 physical resources ranging in subjects to support the academic pursuits of our many students. There is also a popular paperback collection to nurture a general love of reading and provide the opportunity to simply unwind with a good book! The Library’s rapidly growing e-book collection is approaching nearly 200,000 volumes and is accessible by any member of the Neumann community via the internet. Database subscriptions provide access to approximately 100,000 full-text scholarly electronic journals. In addition, database subscriptions also provide full-text access to 1.2 million full-text dissertations and theses and 10,000 full-text news sources. The Library collection is also augmented through extensive borrowing and visitation privileges afforded by membership in consortia like the Southeastern Pennsylvania Consortia for Higher Education (SEPCHE) and Tri-State College Library Cooperative (TCLC). Programming in the Library supports a sense of community engagement, learning and serving the “whole” student with events like community art receptions, faculty readings, Finals Study Breaks, a Black History Month Student Showcase, the Bock Book Award, a jigsaw Puzzle Place, adult coloring, board games, and other academic and cultural events.

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 died, 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.
