Fontbonne University

Fontbonne University is a vibrant and strong academic institution located in the Clayton suburb within the St. Louis metropolitan area. We were founded by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet and established in the Catholic tradition, yet we serve and welcome a diverse group of students from all faiths, cultures, backgrounds, and beliefs. With nearly 1,000 students enrolled, we offer Division III athletics, a large range of student organizations, and more than 100 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs.  Fontbonne University is uniquely situated to offer the best of city sights and scenes coupled with beautiful and historic homes and neighborhoods. 

Believing that diversity contributes to academic excellence and to rich and rewarding communities, Fontbonne University is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse faculty, staff and student body. Candidates from historically under-represented groups, whose work furthers our diversity and inclusion efforts and who bring to campus varied life experiences, perspectives and backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply. 

Open your mind. Follow your heart. Take the leap. Challenging, welcoming, affordable.  Fontbonne will prepare you for an engaged and rewarding life, no matter how you’re called to serve.
