Le Moyne College, named after Jesuit missionary Simon LeMoyne, is a private Jesuit college in Syracuse, New York enrolling over 3,500 undergraduate and graduate students. Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1946, Le Moyne is the first Jesuit college to be founded as a co-educational institution. The College is the second-youngest of the twenty-eight Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, and is the only comprehensive Catholic college in Central New York.
Le Moyne College is a diverse learning community that strives for academic excellence in the Catholic and Jesuit tradition through its comprehensive programs rooted in the liberal arts and sciences. Its emphasis is on education of the whole person and on the search for meaning and value as integral parts of the intellectual life. Le Moyne College seeks to prepare its members for leadership and service in their personal and professional lives to promote a more just society.
Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1946, Le Moyne is the second youngest of the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, and the first to open as a coeducational institution. It was named in honor of Simon Le Moyne, S.J., a priest, missionary and teacher with a considerable influence on Central New York. Le Moyneï¿½s first classes were held in downtown Syracuse before excavation began on the former Gifford Farm. In 1948 the Collegeï¿½s first two structures, now known as Grewen Hall and the Coyne Science Center, were built. Today, the campus has grown to include five academic buildings and 15 residential buildings, as well as a chapel, library, performing arts center, Jesuit residence, plaza, and athletic facilities. Although it is now in its sixth decade, the College remains true to the ideals and the 470-year-old intellectual and religious tradition upon which it was based. It is committed to its founding ideal, ï¿½But Love the Truth and Peace,ï¿½ and to providing students with a well-rounded, liberal arts education. Courses in English, history, religion and philosophy remain at the core of a studentï¿½s academic experience at Le Moyne. At the same time, Le Moyne is also a progressive institution, growing and developing in the Ignatian spirit of adaptation to current needs. It provides educational opportunities for commuter and residential students, and older students eager to continue their education study alongside their traditional college-age peers. Today approximately 2,300 undergraduate students and 800 graduate students are enrolled in Le Moyne. More than 700 courses are offered, leading to Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degrees in more than 30 different majors, or masterï¿½s degrees in nursing, business administration, physician assistant studies and education. To date, Le Moyne has been guided by 13 presidents. Its current president, Fred P. Pestello, Ph.D., is the Collegeï¿½s first permanent lay leader.
