DeSales University is a small-sized, private, four-year Catholic university with a Salesian mission administered by the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales. Our priority is to give our students a quality, broad-based liberal arts and career-centered education as well as provide many opportunities for service learning, leadership, and other outside-the-classroom experiences. Students are exposed to Catholic teachings but are also afforded the luxury of exploring in an atmosphere of intellectual freedom. Everyone is treated with the dignity of the human person that they deserve.
