The University of Saint Francis was founded in 1890, in Lafayette, Indiana. The University moved to the former estate of industrialist John H. Bass in Fort Wayne in 1944. The University of Saint Francis is a Catholic, Franciscan sponsored, coeducational, and liberal arts University. The campus shows 70 acres of rolling lawns, lake, and trees with 20 buildings, including three residence halls. The University enrollment is approximately 1,700 students, including some 200 graduate students. More than half the students are women, and approximately 35 percent of full-time undergraduate students live on-campus. The majority of students are from Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio, with students from many other states and foreign countries. Students represent many religious faiths, philosophies, and ethnic backgrounds.

The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools accredits the University of Saint Francis. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is accredited by the Indiana State Board of Nursing (ISBN) and by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

USF has been involved in distance education using interactive video since 1997 and expanded to offering online courses in 2000. Participation in the Indiana College Network allows USF to broaden its offerings and service to learners throughout Indiana. Distance education courses are delivered via the Internet using Blackboard courseware. Registered nurses pursuing their bachelor’s degree in nursing at USF can choose between the familiarity of the traditional classroom setting and the convenience of classes via the Internet for most courses.
