The University of Providence is a Roman Catholic institution sponsored by Providence Ministries.
Founded by the Sisters of Providence, we continue the teaching ministry of Jesus Christ as an educational ministry of the Providence System.
Our Providence Heritage inspires us to proclaim the love of God to all we serve and to instill in our students a special concern for the most poor and vulnerable of our society. Our Catholic Faith guides and informs all that we do at the University, as we minister to the educational and spiritual needs of a diverse student body representing many faith and cultural traditions.
Campus Ministry at the University of Providence provides students with opportunities to experience the Provident love of God and to share this love with others through worship, retreats, faith sharing, and other opportunities for spiritual growth.
Mission & Catholic Identity
As an expression of the teaching of Jesus Christ, the mission of the University of Providence is to provide students with the opportunity to obtain a liberal education for living and for making a living.
At the Sister Providencia Center for Service Engagement, we firmly believe that every act of service is an exchange. The individuals we serve have many things to teach us. We help students seek out these learnings from their sacred encounters and apply them to their lives.
History & Tradition
The University of Providence continues the 165-year heritage of Catholic education in the tradition of the Sisters of Providence, who opened their first school in the Montana Territory in 1864.
