The Mount's Mission states that Mount St. Joseph University is a Catholic academic community grounded in the spiritual values and visions of its founders, the Sisters of Charity. The University educates its students through interdisciplinary liberal arts and professional curricula, emphasizing values, integrity, and social responsibility. Members of the Mount community embrace excellence in academic endeavors, the integration of life and learning, respect and concerns for all persons, diversity of cultures and beliefs, service to others. To me, the Mission is our values, and it's our connection to the values of the Sisters of Charity. As a Sister of Charity, the Mission means, to me, carrying out the mission of the Gospel. It's a vision and it's goals. The Mission is life. The Mission is every day. It's something that we carry out through our everyday lives. Every person here means something to the Mission. You know that you're something of a greater whole, more than just yourself, just your individual team. The Mount's Mission is about the whole person. Education of mind, body, and spirit is especially important in today's world. We, uh, teach our students that it's so important to care for the world. It means that there is a consistency and a continuation of a legacy. The Mission is important because it is a ground work that influences everything we do on Campus. It's the guiding light. It's the blueprint for creating this legacy. It provides the unifying focus on what really matters to the Mount and the outside community. With the Mount, you get more than just an education. You get a training for the rest of your life. It gives us a framework for how we are with our students and how they then turn and act in the community. It guides our learning, our future endeavors, and our community as a University. Almost every day you can find the Mission living on our campus, and that is through the interactions people have with each other. That's the fabric of who we are. Every single teacher I have ever had has been willing to go such an extra mile to help students. When I see professors or staff interacting with the students, you can tell that's it's more of a personal relationship. From a staff's stand point, we're all here to serve the students, and uh, you know, to put our best foot forward to make the students feel welcome here. It becomes more than just a job or a career. It becomes about, you know, helping others and working with students to help them succeed. Even since I've graduated, I have been invited back to attend different events and also to mentor other students. We believe critical thinking and the discernment of information is important. It gave them the confidence and the courage to be leaders. Every winter, students give up a week of their break to go down to New Orleans and really convert the Mission from a concept into a tangible experience. When they arrive on campus, they're usually asking, “What can this university do for me?” But by the time they graduate, they are in turn asking, “What can I do to better this university?” So the Mount not only asks students to get involved on campus, but to take the Mission off campus and spread the words of the Sisters of Charity through all of our community partners. The dedication of service to others is the backbone of the Mount community. The faculty, staff, and students all really come together to make a difference in our community and in other's lives. As a community we live the Mission by serving the needs of others, by challenging one another to develop intellectually and spiritually, by embracing its principles and making the principles the guidelines for all of our decision making. The outreach, uh, that we have here not just for the student body and the people that work here but how that affects their lives, and then, they go out into the world and the way they interact with other people and the positive impact that they have because of what they've engaged in here at the University. We all come from different backgrounds, different personalities. Not only do we promote diversity, we also give students the opportunity to go out into the communities to provide service. The Mission guides the Mount as an institution but it also guides our everyday interactions. You see it in the thoughtful and caring way that we interact with one another. It gives our students, faculty, and staff a blueprint for success and a blueprint for a way of living. The Mission guides the Mount in every aspect, from the teachers and what they're teaching to how the students are living their daily life. Probably the most important part of the Mission at the Mount is that the timing of its success is not measured by the amount in my bank account but by the impact I’ve had on the world around me. That is how we live the Mission.



Mount St. Joseph University was established by the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, Ohio, a religious congregation that traces its roots to Elizabeth Ann Seton, North America's first canonized saint. The first Sisters of Charity arrived in Cincinnati from Maryland in 1829 and opened St. Peter’s Academy, then St. Mary’s Academy. By 1853, these schools were replaced by Mount St. Vincent Academy. In 1906 the academy was named Mount St. Joseph after a move to the Mount St. Joseph property in Cincinnati’s Delhi Township, owned by the Sisters of Charity.

Mount St. Joseph Academy offered a four-year high school curriculum but also postgraduate study covering two years of college. In 1920, the Ohio Department of Education granted formal approval for a college curriculum. The College of Mount St. Joseph opened the doors to its first 20 students in September 1920 as the first Catholic college for women in Southwestern Ohio – the same year that American women gained the right to vote.

By the 1950s, the Sisters of Charity made plans to develop property at the intersection of Delhi and Neeb Roads into a new campus that opened in fall of 1962. By the 1970s, adult education brought a new population of women and men to campus for degree studies, and by 1986, the college was coeducational. The Sisters of Charity continued to operate the college until 1972 when the Mount was incorporated under a Board of Trustees. The college remains a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Charity.

On October 9, 2013, the college announced the change to university status. It would be known as Mount St. Joseph University, effective July 1, 2014.[4] The change in designation reflects the school's expanding academic offerings, including increasing its number of graduate programs for master's and doctorate degrees, as well as implementing online programs.


The Mount fields 22 NCAA Division III athletic teams called the Lions, most of which compete in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference.

Men's sports: Baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling.

  • Two men's sports not sponsored by the HCAC have separate affiliations, both in conferences created for the 2014–15 school year. Lacrosse plays in the Ohio River Lacrosse Conference and volleyball plays in the Midwest Collegiate Volleyball League.

Women's sports: Basketball, cheerleading, cross country, dance, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field and volleyball.

  • The HCAC does not sponsor women's lacrosse; that team plays on the women's side of the Ohio River Lacrosse Conference.
  • Cheerleading and dance are university-recognized sports, but are not recognized as official NCAA sports.

Lauren Hill

In late 2014, incoming freshman basketball player Lauren Hill was suffering from an inoperable brain tumor and facing the possibility of dying before the end of that year, and wished to play in one college game before her death. The Mount's season opener against Hiram College, originally scheduled for November 15, was moved with NCAA approval to November 2; when the event outgrew the MSJ campus, Xavier University gave MSJ free use of its arena, Cintas Center. In a sold-out game that ended up being nationally televised by Fox College Sports, Hill scored the first and last baskets. The game was the start of a charitable fundraising campaign that, by the time of her death in April 2015, raised over $1.5 million for research into the specific cancer from which Hill was suffering. She went on to play in three more games before her declining health forced her to end her playing career. Hill ultimately died of her brain tumor on April 10, 2015. Since her death, MSJ and Xavier have teamed up for an annual season-opening women's basketball doubleheader, the Lauren Hill Tipoff Classic, at Cintas Center.

Student publications

The university's student newspaper, Dateline, is published monthly.

The university's literacy magazine, "Lions-on-line", is published each semester.

The university's student podcast, MountCast, is published weekly.

Greek Life

The university currently has one international fraternity on campus, Delta Tau Delta. Chartered on April 28th 2018, the Kappa Eta chapter initiates male students and hosts many events on campus each semester. The university has begun the process of adding a sorority and expanding Greek Life.
