President’s Welcome

Dr. Dougherty Thank you for your interest in Duquesne University. I have had the privilege to lead this University since 2001, working with dedicated faculty and staff and getting to know many amazing students.

Students and their families consistently tell me they are impressed by Duquesne's academic quality, the visible care and concern we show each other, and the beauty of our urban campus. At Duquesne, you won't be a "number." You'll be part of a community that embraces you and helps you achieve your goals, whatever they may be. Our emphasis on an "education for the mind, heart and spirit" is not simply a slogan-it's a way of life.

Please review this website and come visit us on our Bluff in Pittsburgh. You'll learn more about how your academic and personal interests can be fulfilled at Duquesne.

Charles J. Dougherty, Ph.D.
