Notable Alumni

Untitled Document

Their stories are different. But their common beginning was a Saint Joseph’s University education providing the tools necessary to make their mark on the world.

An Olympic medalist, an entrepreneur, a government agency leader, a physician conducting groundbreaking research, a U.S. ambassador, a university president, a Cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, a CEO, a women’s basketball coach, a founder of a life-transforming nonprofit organization… and the list continues. Such SJU alumni have made a profound and admirable difference in the lives of others.

While we’re proud of the achievements of all our alumni, and particularly those that reflect the University’s passion for service, some have garnered national recognition or have advanced causes that many of us embrace. The accomplishments of our graduates in academia, corporate work, medicine, sports and government – as well as through spiritual, volunteer and philanthropic leadership – are the most telling measure of SJU’s success.
