Founded in 1814, Spalding University is the oldest university west of the Alleghenies to be steeped in the Catholic tradition. As a private, co-educational, independent, non-for-profit university, Spalding offers twenty-seven fully accredited degree programs, including several nationally recognized and highly competitive graduate degrees.

Faculty, staff and students are united by the institutional mission: Spalding University is a diverse community of learners dedicated to meeting the needs of the times in the tradition of the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth through quality undergraduate and graduate liberal and professional studies, grounded in spiritual values, with emphasis on service and the promotion of peace and justice.

Spalding has always been a leader in serving populations who might otherwise have gone underserved by higher education – offering formal higher education to women at a time when it was a rarity, and later admitting African American students while many institutions were still segregated. Spalding is committed to serving students whose potential for success and drive to grow through education may be greater than their academic preparation or economic ability, and has developed an institutional model that works with each student to build on their capabilities, equipping them to compete professionally and academically.

Spalding’s tradition of reaching underrepresented populations continues today, filling a critical educational niche in our community. Among Spalding’s student population of just over 2,400:

• 39% of students identify as an ethnic minority (15-20% greater than other local universities) nearly half (46%) are first-generation college students

• 59% (695 out of 1171 total undergrads) are eligible for Pell Grants (indicating an economically disadvantaged household).

Spalding’s impact in our community extends far beyond the student body. Through students’ practicum, fieldwork and clinical assignments in conjunction with over 150 area health care and community-based agencies, Spalding touches over 25,000 adults and children each year. Considering over three quarters of Spalding graduates remain in the greater Louisville region following graduation, investment in our students today means continued investment tomorrow as they continue to play a significant role in growing the college-educated workforce in the area.
