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 Moyne’s first classes were held in downtown Syracuse before excavation began on the former Gifford Farm. In 1948, the College’s 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 seventh decade, the College remains true to the ideals and the nearly 500-year-old intellectual and religious tradition upon which it was based. It is committed to its founding ideal, “But Love the Truth and Peace,” and to providing students with a well-rounded, liberal arts education. Courses in English, history, religion and philosophy remain at the core of a student’s academic experience at Le Moyne.
Today, approximately 2,800 undergraduate students and 600 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 master’s degrees in nursing, business administration, physician assistant studies, education, occupational therapy and arts administration.
To date, Le Moyne has been guided by 14 presidents. Its current president, Linda LeMura, Ph.D., is the first laywoman to serve as the president at any Jesuit college or university in the United States.
