Mission Statement

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.

UP, as a faith-based Roman Catholic university, believes in the biblical principle “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12 NABRE)

The university was founded through the collaborative efforts of the Sisters of Providence, the Ursuline Sisters, the Catholic Bishop of Great Falls, and the civic community, all of whom recognized the need for higher education. Its educational mission, in conjunction with the Sisters of Providence, continues to be the shared endeavor of dedicated people.
