About Felician University
Our First Priority is Our Students. Our Second is Their Future. Founded in 1942 by the Felician Sisters, Felician University is one of the few Franciscan universities in the country, and the only one in New Jersey. We’ve built our reputation with an emphasis on service and respect for humanity, as was the dream of Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska – the foundress of the Felician Sisters more than a century ago. Even today, we strive to represent those values in everything we do. Without question, students are the top priority at Felician.
