"At Mansfield University, we develop leaders. We accomplish this by focusing on the four core values that have been our tradition since 1912: Character, Scholarship, Culture, and Service."
MANSFIELD Classical Seminary opened its doors in January, 1857, four years before the beginning of the Civil War. Over the next 157 years, the institution has thrived, experiencing five name changes in three centuries.
Nestled in beautiful north central Pennsylvania, Mansfield University is in the middle of somewhere special. The University is located near thousands of acres of state land, lakes, and spectacular mountain views – including the nearby Pine Creek Gorge - Pennsylvania’s “Grand Canyon.”
Our location is not the only thing that makes Mansfield University special. It’s our commitment to provide students with an environment in which they can find themselves, build on their strengths, and hone leadership skills that will carry them for a lifetime.
