A Message from President Anne Prisco, Ph.D.

Anne Prisco, Ph.D. President

Dear Holy Family University Alumni and Friends, 

Holy Family University is at an inflection point in our storied history. Building on the solid foundation set forth by the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth, we are embarking on a transformational path so that Holy Family will continue to provide students with academic excellence at an affordable cost in a campus environment that is welcoming, inclusive, and values-based.

With educational excellence at the forefront, we have identified a set of philanthropic initiatives designed to ensure that our students are equipped with the resources and tools to be successful inside and outside the classroom and that they are prepared with the knowledge and skills to succeed in today’s workforce. 

These initiatives are designed to amplify our impact in Northeast Philadelphia and Newtown, Bucks County, showcasing the strength of the Holy Family University brand in ways that ensure we remain competitive in the marketplace as we serve key audiences. 

Holy Family is uniquely from the community and for the community. Our students, faculty, and staff live here, they go to school and teach here, and they pour their knowledge back into their communities. As an anchor institution, Holy Family University holds a truly unique value proposition for the future of the Northeast and Bucks County, and indeed, greater Philadelphia. 

For 70 years, Holy Family University has been a place where students from all backgrounds explore their futures and emerge as leaders able to navigate a rapidly changing society. Therefore, we must do our part to ensure that this mission continues to inspire and elevate those we serve for another 70 years and beyond. 

We cannot achieve our ambitious goals without your help. To this end, we invite your partnership on our path to the future. Our agenda is critical and forwardthinking, and with your support and that of many others, we are confident that together we can attain the next-level changes our community deserves and ensure that Holy Family’s legacy of excellence continues for generations to come. 

Thank you for all that you do on behalf of Holy Family University. 

Onward & upward together in faith & family, 

Anne Prisco, Ph.D.
