Founded in 1908, we are named after the Patron Saint Marguerite d'Youville to be a compassionate place of learning for underrepresented populations. With a long, Catholic history, we welcomes students of every culture, background, and faith. The first Western New York college to offer baccalaureate degree programs for women, D'Youville has been co-ed since the 1970s.

We offer more than 50 undergraduate majors, with nursing, liberal arts and humanities and physician assistant among the most popular. We award eight different doctorate degrees, the most of any private institution in Western New York, including Chiropractic (DC), Educational Leadership (EdD), Family Nurse Practitioner (DNP), Health Administration (EdD), Health Professions Education (EdD), Pharmacy (PharmD), Physical Therapy (DPT), and Psychiatric Mental Health Practitioner (DNP).

At D'Youville, all classes, labs and seminars are taught by dedicated, expert faculty at the forefront of their fields - not teaching assistants. Our faculty know their students by name and care about your success. Our small class sizes will challenge you intellectually; we are here to support you.
