At the heart of who Brescia University is as an institution is the mission of personal and social transformation through education and producing servant leaders who make a difference in the lives of others, their community, their church and the world. Service to others is rooted in the history and tradition of Brescia University from the selflessness of the foundress of the Company of St. Ursula, St. Angela Merici of Brescia, Italy in the 16th Century.
