  • General Information
    About Siena Heights University

    A Catholic liberal arts institution founded in 1919 by the Adrian Dominican Sisters, Siena Heights was originally named St. Joseph College, and enrolled many of the graduates of neighboring St. Joseph Academy, founded some years earlier by the Adrian Dominicans. In 1939, St. Joseph College was renamed Siena Heights College, in honor of Catherine of Siena, a 14th century Italian Dominican who dedicated her life to a quest for truth and social responsibility, and in recognition of the College’s location on the highest land in the surrounding area. In 1997, the Board of Trustees voted to change the institution’s name again, effective July 1, 1998; Siena Heights University was chosen as a more accurate reflection of the kind of institution Siena Heights is today.

    Institutional statistical data was gathered from the U.S. Department of Education - Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Education Statistics, 2009-2010.
