Points of Pride

Mount Saint Mary’s University’s academic programs place a strong emphasis on social and ethical values consistent with the Catholic view of compassionate community involvement—both in Southern California and around the world. The University also prides itself on the diversity of its student body and faculty, which includes a wide variety of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.


Mount Saint Mary’s University was established in 1925 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Since their founding in Le Puy, France, in 1650, the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (CSJs) have been faithful to their original mission of "helping women become all they are capable of being" and of "serving all persons without distinction."
