We are thrilled to announce the completion of The Conway School of Nursing and the Campus Gateway! Thank you, Clark Construction!

🔬 Within the walls of this project lies a marvel of modern nursing education technologies with simulation hospital rooms, virtual reality, and state-of-the-art lab spaces.

🪨These modern spaces are wrapped in an exterior of century-old stone, salvaged from the 1926 Church of the Transfiguration in Philadelphia, to match the aged facades of the neighboring buildings.

⛲ The new Campus Gateway provides a thoughtful new design for the point of convergence of the university’s several thoroughfares, featuring the new Trinity Fountain, realigned pathways, and intentional sightlines that bring alignment and connection to the central hub.

Furniture, fixtures, and equipment will continue to be moved-in this spring for nursing school faculty and staff to program and test this summer, and the school will be ready to welcome nursing students in Fall 2024.

We're beyond excited to release our new anthem video, ''Lead with Light,'' inspired by our University motto “Deus Lux Mea Est” (God Is My Light).

“Lead with Light” is the result of a campus conversation about who we are and how others perceive us. The importance of leadership combined with the image of light brings to mind our commitment to our Catholic identity and excellence in all we do, whether it’s in the lab, in the classroom, in service to our community, or on the sporting field.
