Duquesne University prides itself on being
mission-centered and mission-driven. Our employees contribute to our culture of academic excellence
and our mission of serving God by serving students. In turn, they enjoy a supportive
working environment that values individual talents, encourages teamwork and
rewards accomplishments. Founded in 1878 by the
Congregation of the Holy Spirit (the Spiritans), Duquesne opened its doors as
the Pittsburgh Catholic College with an enrollment of 40 students and six
faculty members. Duquesne University today is an educational and economic
powerhouse, comprising 10 schools of study which serve more than 10,000
A nationally ranked top-tier
university, Duquesne has established a legacy of excellence in liberal and
professional education. Our 14:1 student-faculty ratio allows our students to
work closely with expert faculty, and make full use of modern learning,
computing and research facilities. Yet the university is large enough – with more
than 180 academic programs -- to provide a wide range of educational options. Duquesne
has also won accolades and recognition among the nation’s top 20 small research
schools for our research initiatives and faculty productivity.
Duquesne University employs more than 2,800 full-time and part-time
faculty and staff. We strive to attract, recruit and retain a dynamic, diverse workforce
that includes faculty, administrators, managers and business professionals, as
well as coaches, public safety officials and facilities management, technical
